HOPC: Curator Deck by Emmanuel José

Emmanuel José graduated with a degree in Studio Art from DavidsonCollege, where he created drawings, prints and paintings. During his undergraduate years, he was introduced to the technique of papercutting.

In 2011, a longtime fascination with playing cards prompted Emmanuel to set up a personal challenge: Create 1 playing card a week, culminating in a complete deck of transformation playing cards***.
