Drawn from the artist's Tech Bum series—which envisions a future portrait of his native Bay Area—, and also from the artist's personal imagery, Exploding Jezebel untwists a narrative universe of misfit characters in Paul Klee-like palettes and visionary hues.

This first monograph on Paulo Nimer Pjota, profusely illustrated and collecting several essays and a long conversation between the Brazilian artist and Kiki Mazzucchelli, takes stock at Nimer Pjota's signature condensation of pictorial concerns and life lessons. His layered works, like modern, rough palimpsests, are testaments to the artist's collapsing of high with low, society and history with the personal and the marginal, often told through readymade details and objects that Nimer Pjota corrals in front of the wall pieces.
