Rodrigo Branco was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He spent most of his life in the Grajau neighborhood, on the extreme south of the capital. Considered as a cultural center, the area and the local artists had great influence on the development of his artistic point of view. Rodrigo addresses a particular topic: people. He is inspired by looks and faces of his everyday life, memories of his time in Grajau and his researches and photographic documents. He gives characters no definition to its borderlines, strong colors and unusual faces. Powered by the expression of restless traces, strong and striking features, on walls, canvases or paper, his work challenges us.
