ABOUT VILLAS

Rodrigo Villas Boas, native of Rio de Janeiro is a multidisciplinary artist graduated in Visual Communication at PUC-Rio. Lived in Barcelona from 2006 until 2012, where I did a postgrad study on Illustration at the Eina school (Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona) and got a masters degree on Digital Arts at the lnstitut Universitari de !'Audiovisual at University Pompeu Fabra. I was a resident artist at Hangar and Experimentem amp L'art; both recognized centers of artistic production in Barcelona. I received scholarships and my work was featured in different cities of Spain and Europe. On 2015 I was a resident artist in the International Program at Al  Riwaq, Bharein. Currently I reside and work in Rio de Janeiro, but I dont really believe in a world with borders.

 

After investigating about the combination of digital art with my production I hove reach an original language that is able to transmit concepts of my interest. The use of technology efficiently reassert the speech and allows a deep discussion related to the practice of urban art.
