Rio de janeiro, Brasil

Rodrigo Lima (aka.Tizil) was Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and have always been linked to colors, graffiti, chaos, music and typography.
Since an early age, he had shown extreme sensitivity to shapes and lines, which later led him to fine arts and graphic design school. 
Over the past years he has experienced the fashion industry creating graphics and assisting the development of clothing lines for Brazilian brands. Along with that, Rodrigo has taken part of some fine arts related projects with some exposure in Rio de Janeiro- Brazil, and New York city- USA, and motion graphics as well. 
Workaholism, letter, lines and primary colors describe an artist that keeps a strong and organic identity.

So, a few months ago, me and the crew from Fuzuê and the kids from the Brazilian hip-hop band Start, along with the mighty and lovely girls from Ao Quadrado Production, came up with this idea of making an Ep cover to the band…

A couple of  Xerox machines and photoshops later, followed by a enormous amount of coffee, the following came up.

Hello internet people!

After a great absence, here is the latest.

First, an artwork done as the cover to the first single of a Brazilian Hip-Hop band called Start.

A little while ago, Start approached me and the kids at Fuzuê (www.fuzuecomunicativo.com) to put some artwork together for their releases.

So, this is the first, and more are yet to come!

Well, a few months ago a friend of mine was putting together a show at a college gallery in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and asked me to enter with a piece.

Many thanks to Fillipe Brum.

Last Thursday, in Newark, NJ, started the annual event organized by the Newark arts council, the Open Doors 2009. Over 30 galleries, some of them itinerant, are part of the circuit which includes a number of curated and juried exhibitions highlighting artists from Newark and surrounding areas.

The people from UnOneAllCentro, were kind enough to invite me to be, along with other artists from Latin America and Europe, part of a collective show at National Newark Building.

Many thanks to Newark Arts Council and UnOneAllCentro.
