Intro
The 8th edition of JOYA Barcelona has been a success and consolidated the event as the main art jewellery fair in Spain. Fulfilling its objective, JOYA has promoted national and international artists through the exhibition and communication, with a selection of the best representatives of art jewellery field. For the third year, the Arts Santa Mónica, has become home of more than 200 artists and more than 3,000 visitors attended the three-day event.

Undoubtedly, JOYA become a “must” place for all art jewellery connoisseurs, a "meeting point" and business platform between artists and galleries, private collectors and cultural elite, with a full schedule of events, exhibitions, conferences, and supported by important publications and mass media on and off line.
 
With the effort to innovate in every edition, this year JOYA created a link between the artists and art world with the exhibition “Les Confluences”, curate by the Italian Nichka Marobin that brought us into the world of Ramon Casas paintings combining them with art jewellery pieces from 10 recognized artists around the world
 
To close the event and celebrate Excellency in the art jewellery field, the big winner of this year was UK artist Liana Pattihis, winner of JOYA AWARD 2016.
 
Her latest collection is inspired by found images depicting flora and fauna. The images are chosen for their visual composition or specific aesthetic elements and are given a three dimensional ‘Chained Interpretation’, thus converting them into wearable pieces of jewellery. Unlike the making process used in preceding work, each enamel colour is fused and fired on the chain separately and the piece is constructed afterwards from the previously enamelled chain. This allows the piece to evolve with the various types of chain and colours mixing and intertwining, poetically responding to the images as if they were ‘still lives’ , translating them into an impressionistic pixelated relief of textured layers.
