SubmissionFeatured Art by Roto Colado My name is Fabiano...
My name is Fabiano Pinheiro (aka under Roto Colado).
I was always fascinated by any visual approach that my eye could catch from this world since as long as I remember. I studied Product Design at Rio’s School of Fine Arts and I have been working as an art director in Brazil for 20 years.
During this period, I always incorporated collage illustration into my commercial work and this gradually led me to look for my own voice as an illustrator.
The Synchronicity Project (2019)
The “magic” of meaningful coincidence manifesting in oracles was conceptualized by Jung as Synchronicity. It is one of the methods used by the unconscious to bring out a perception - not just from the guessing arts, but also of those other “coincidences” that touch us so deeply that they awaken to a new observation of the already known moment. This project started as a suggestion from my mother-in-law (who plays tarot) and gave me the idea of trying to recreate the tarot cards of Marseille and Rider-Waite by collage techniques. Meaningful coincidence?
From there, the focus is to recreate by “a new observation”, figures from anywhere, giving them another meaning, but maintaining the fundamental concepts of classical tarot cards.
Thank you for your submission.
