João Doria (BR, 1982) is a polymath wannabe. His work interviews editing strategies in opposition to concision and simplicity, drawing knowledge from fields such as digital projection, filmmaking, architecture and installation art from a (graphic) designerly perspective. Doria received an MFA from the Yale School of Art in 2014 and co-founded The Ventriloquist Summerschool. Recent exhibitions include “The Digital vs. the Archaic (Van Eyck/NL, 2015), “26th Concours International (Chaumont/FR, 2015)” and “It’s a Book” (Leipzig/DE, 2015). Doria is currently a guest lecturer and in Norway at Westerdals ACT Graphic Design BA and Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo’s MA Design. He's also an affiliate graduate faculty member at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts.
