MORE Project Artist Jhonatan Rolemberg Rises Out of a Void
On May 10, 1993, Jhonatan Rolemberg was born into a kind of forsaken poverty.
In a city called São Gonçalo, outside of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Jhon grew up in an abandoned apartment without running water, energy, or a working toilet. That was the situation inside. Outside, in the bairro, prostitution, drug trafficking, and casualties surrounded him. Ever burned into Jhon’s mind was the time when he saw a person die right in front of him.
