Cadu’s drawings are an accumulation made with one colored pencil applied on the same surface. They generate an illusion of depth for the observer. This procedure is repeated successively until the complete consumption of the pencil.
Cadu (Carlos Eduardo Felix da Costa) is an artist and educator who is currently pursuing postdoctoral research at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and teaching as a professor at the School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage (Rio de Janeiro). Cadu’s practice deals with the creation of systems, machines, installations, painting, drawings, and sculptures that incorporate elements of nature to push the boundaries of the relationship between man and landscape. These systems are also used to explore the area of sonic arts. Cadu is currently an artist-in-residence at Residency Unlimited.
