We are all born to be wild we just have to unleash our inner beast. Our relationship with those that are unlike us define what we are as human beings. It is how we define ourselves in relation to these others that will ultimately determine whether we continue to share this world with them.
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."
