Rodrigo Cardoso (29 years old), self-taught, found his means of expression through urban art. He is a pioneer in the street art of Chapecó, in Brazil’s southern state of Santa Catarina, and since 2003 has been participating in exhibitions and projects beyond the boundaries his home-town. His work and style are focused on street culture, with everyday life, surrealism and his two sons his main sources of inspiration. His techniques go far beyond spray-painting, not limited only to the walls, looking for new materials, techniques and colours. His creations have proportion, balance and technique. From the walls to the canvas and from the canvas to mosaics built with scrap wood, Digo, as he is known, mixes, creates and innovates. His idea of art revolves around the ability to make people get inspired. And his interest to evolve goes beyond galleries.
