Intro
The winner of the fifth and last edition of The After Joya Effect is Wanshu Li! It's the first time that the winner of the Joya Award at Joya Barcelona Art Jewellery & Objects is the same as the public Award winner of The After Joya Effect exhibition in Athens. The Solo exhibition of Wanshu Li will be announced the following months.
Wanshu Li’s Go with the Glow jewellery series is largely inspired by the brilliant colours and sensuous movements of sea creatures like the jellyfish and sea anemones now familiar to us from television programmes such as Blue Planet II.

The concept of her work aims to explore a multi-sensory wearing experience in jewellery which involves different sensory perceptions such as visual enjoyment, tactility and sound. Therefore, her exotic jewels are designed to appeal to the hand and ear as well as the eye. For example, The beads mounted on their moving nylon wires are irresistibly tempting to touch, and all the pieces create subtle sounds as they move with the body.

Wanshu’s fascination with dance culture, laser light shows and stage performances have encouraged her to add a further visual dimension to her work. She experiments with ultraviolet-reactive nylon and fluorescent paint which combine to produce a remarkable intensity of colour when the jewellery is lit with UV light. Glittering sequins add bright eye-catching flashes to the effect. Exotic even in daylight, these extraordinary playful jewels come startlingly alive in the dark.
