"Disobey the men, trust in nature!"
Valdinei Calvento (Cabelo)

Born and raised in São Paulo- Brazil, Valdinei Calvento (Cabelo) is influenced by the world. Encouraged by my
parents and my grandmother from a very young age I began to draw and create my own toys with parts of old radios
and televisions that they gave me. Drawing my whole life, it naturally ended up becoming my work. I went through
several places, but even found happiness doing my drawings on the street, meeting new people and being able to
rethink everyday ways to show that art presents us with a totally different world, with much more detail, with much more
life, more intensity . I believe in gratitude and respect for nature as our redemption.


Some works exhibited show symptoms of a sick society filled with hatred, jealousy and desire, when you talk about TV,
cult of beauty and panache. Putting us in uncomfortable situations, like a circus artist in flames. On the other hand,
other work presents nature as a refuge, as a mother's lap and is always ready to protect us and when they need to be
hard to educate us. There are works that were done at random which were created to make us think, discuss
behaviors and observe the details of our lives.
An artist who finds inspiration bicycling through the streets. Cabelo makes his work an instrument to show the
company the right and wrong in a big city and show the flowers and the beauty cult. In a country full of prejudice and
injustice, the artist never stops to take inspiration.
