I see a hue of colors – blue, purple, yellow, orange, red, and green. They swirl around forming many different shapes and designs. Colors of different sorts show pictures and forms that only I can create. On my canvas, I can paint and make all the vibrant colors that my eye can see. I can create pictures that come to life. Color makes the world a more vibrant, glorious and marvelous place to see. A beautiful place to spend some time, this little place in my mind, my contemplative holiday, my inner sanctum, where I unwind.
Brazilian artist Cadu transports his viewer to another world. Each of his paintings are filled with bright, vibrant color and unique patterns. Cadu uses color to evoke emotions allowing his creative spirit to run free. Born in São Paulo, Brazil in 1985. He migrated to the United States of America with his family at a young age. Unable to speak English at the time, he used art to communicate and express himself. Years later, he returned to Brazil to learn more about his heritage and was amazed by the amount of color and life in his home country. During that time, he became one of the town's most recognized street artists. In those 4 years, Cadu painted over 100 murals throughout the state of São Paulo. He learned new techniques and collaborated with several other street artists. Although not formally trained, Cadu has educated himself by exposure to the arts and constant sharpening of his artistic skills. Influenced by artists like, OS Gemeos, Andy Warhol, Claude Monet and many other. Cadu has developed his own distinctive style and artistic concept. One of his favorite quotes is, "If I could say it with words, I would have no reason to paint."
