Unveiling Jan Hendrix’s graphic journey which spans almost half a century, offering a rich tapestry of maps and coordinates. Featuring essays by esteemed colleagues such as Estrella de Diego, Patricia Sloane, Olivier Debroise, and more, “ATLAS” not only showcases Hendrix’s art but also provides profound insights from influential voices in his career, adding depth and context to the visual narrative. Tracing Hendrix’s artistic evolution and global odyssey from rebellious beginnings in Holland, encounters with influential artists in Düsseldorf, collaborations with Francisco Toledo and Gunther Gerzso in Mexico, to his worldwide artistic exploration documented in “Bitácora” and “Script.” This book is a testament to his artistic legacy. Atlas/House presents a set of maps and coordinates to explore almost half a century of Jan Hendrix’s multifaceted cartography; from his early years of training at the Jan van Eyck Academie, in his native Holland, to his most recent essays on shadows, the product of daily walks through Mexico City. A cartography composed of images and texts, arranged in the form of parallel essays: a whimsical set of illustrations of botany, landscape, nature, and poetry, accompanied by essays signed by some of Jan’s distinguished colleagues in his career (Estrella de Diego, Patricia Sloane, Olivier Debroise, Issa María Benítez, Antonio Saborit, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Alejandro Hernández, Javier Barreiro Cavestany, José Luis Barrios). Also included are short texts in which Hendrix reflects on his artistic practice and an introduction by Maco Sánchez, editor of this publication, the result of a reading of the artist’s extensive archive.
