Music By JoJo Zawawi – used with permission by the artist
Here are some words that JoJo used to describe herself: I’m a Classical & Jazz Pianist ! And some Flamenco, too ! I began playing piano when I was 18 months old. I never learned to read music (working on that now !), but have been composing music all my life. Mainly I improvise everything live (although I do have a huge box of stuff I’ve previously written, and I’m always writing more !).
The track in this video is called “From Night to Morning”
In this video I wanted to capture the dream like quality of painting. Images pop into my head from nowhere and the work seems to paint itself by forces beyond my control. Sometimes when I feel blocked, not able to finish a painting. I just have a good sleep and the next morning everything flows again. This painting in particular seemed whimsical. I call this painting the Storyteller because every painting tells a story. You can view the end product here .

Watching others in the act of creation makes me want to pick up my brush and re-imagine the world with it.
