Délio Jasse (Luanda, 1980) was born and raised in Luanda. He now lives in Lisbon where he settled in at the age of eighteen. His interest in different printing techniques was first aroused through his work with silk screens, although soon afterwards this led him to photography. He soon started experimenting with the different technical possibilities of this medium, especially the alternative processes such as the cyanotype, the platinum/palladium e the «Van Dyck Brown».
After his first exhibitions in Lisbon, in 2009 he won the ANTECIPARTE awards with the series Identidade Poética. Since then, his work began enjoying widespread international recognition, as evident in the several residencies and exhibitions in Portugal, Angola, Brazil and France. Among the group exhibition we recall, Present Tense (Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon, 2013), Pour un monde durable (Rencontres de Bamako – Biennale africaine de la photographie, Bamako, 2011) and África (Museu Nacional de História Natural, Luanda, 2010). We also remember the solo show Pontus (Galeria da UNAP – União Nacional dos Artistas Plásticos, Luanda, 2013) and Schengen (Baginski Galeria/ Projetos, Lisbon, 2010).
