Rodrigo Veloso is a Portuguese Artist based in Brooklyn, New York. With a Master's degree in Architecture, Rodrigo pays special attention to texture, where the oil pastel is the key element in his work. He's interested in different cultures and ways of thinking, nature, human figure and the relation between both. His practice is very much influenced by his travels to very different territories, from South America (Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Brazil) and Africa (Egypt, Mozambique) or even New York City. These experiences shape his body of work. After his master's degree and after working as a full time architect, he decided to leave the architecture studio and focus on his individual journey as an artist, mainly through painting and drawing, but also working in illustration and graphic design. With his move from Portugal to the US the artist expands his connections and relations in the art world, collaborating with New York based communities like the ‘Eyes on Art’ group exhibiting in Manhattan (The Storms Inside - April, 2023) and Brooklyn (At Summer’s End - August, 2023) and recently joining the Global Artist Community ‘Tableau’ from the established ‘Visionary Projects NYC’ platform as a founding member. Rodrigo has exhibited work in Lisbon, New York, Paris and Madrid.
