Jwan Atto, born in 1991, is a Syrian artist renowned for his unique integration of scientific knowledge and artistic expression. Educated in Biology at Al-Furat University, Atto further expanded his academic horizons with a DAPAS niveau BAC+4 qualification and training at École d'Art Contemporain Luxembourg. His artistic journey, encouraged since childhood by his family, is deeply intertwined with his extensive scientific knowledge, encompassing fields like Pure Mathematics, Theoretical Physics, Epistemology, BioGeometry, and Applied Chemistry.
Atto's profound understanding of these disciplines led him to establish a new field of study called "Errorology" which explores the nature and characteristics of errors. This innovative approach laid the foundation for his philosophical concept "Errorism" and the accompanying "Errorist Movement" in art. His artwork, characterized by a blend of clarity and ambiguity, uses science as a foundation, transforming complex theories in mathematics and other branches into visually compelling pieces. This fusion of art and science is further exemplified in his technical prowess, where he innovates by creating his own chemical compounds.
His art is marked by its authenticity and philosophical depth, embodying the principle of "Less is More." This simplicity, alongside the philosophy of innovation, ensures a diverse range of artworks, each with its unique character, free from dogmatic constraints. Atto also incorporates Conceptual Art and Crypto Art, reflecting his commitment to freedom of thought and innovation.
Color plays a pivotal role in Atto's work, where he employs a broad spectrum from pale to dark hues, often using color contradiction to accentuate the beauty of spontaneous errors. His artworks invite viewers to unleash their imagination and delve into the spiritual aspects, influenced by his interest in mysticism, enabling a connection to the invisible, high-frequency elements of his pieces.
