OUTPUT (Saída)
By: Roderigo Bro

Half-open the window,
the light passes through its gaps,
lightens photos
and warm loneliness.

Alone searching for new lands
thought camps,
build trenches
and opens wars.

What are we?
What will we be?
What do they want from us?
What we want?

 

 1- please present yourself (Name, education, job, Civil status and...)

- My name is Rodrigo Ribeiro de Souza. Rodrigo Bro is the name I chose as an artist. I was born on July 22, 1981, in Minas Gerais, Brazil. I have lived in Belo Horizonte since 2003. I have a degree in Fine Arts from the State University of Minas Gerais - UEMG / GUIGNARD. I'm an artist and a poet. In 2020 I released two books. INVERSO DO SILÊNCIO by Editora VISEU and CIDADE DE MIM by Editora PENALUX. I work as an art teacher in public education.

 

2-what is your artistic specialize?


- As an artist, I specialized in drawing and painting. As I dedicate myself more to teaching Art, I have a small production. I end up producing more in the field of writing, which allows me to exercise it anywhere and at any time.

 

3- When and how did you become interested in this field of art?

- I have been interested in art since I was a child. I always liked to draw, create and appreciate the paintings of the great artists. That interest never ceased to exist.

 

4- Who was your motivator?

- I don't have any specific person that I can say was my motivator. This desire, this motivation has existed since childhood. Life took care of me so that I could follow the path of art.

 

5- What was your parent’s reaction?

- I am from simple family, humble parents. I lost my father as a teenager and my mother always supported me in my choices. I had to leave the house and live far away. All of this is not easy, but it is part of the pursuit of dreams and the learning of life.

 

6- When started you such as a professional artist?

- I don't know if I consider myself a professional artist. I'm a teacher, I'm an artist, I produce, but I don't make money from art.

 

7- Are you thankful and happy because of your activities as an artist?

- Yes, I am happy as an artist, although I think that every artist has a concern. What makes you sensitive to the world and makes you create, produce. I would like to have a more solid, consistent job and be more productive.

 

8- How you see the view? You are a teacher; you should have an opinion...

-...

9- Can you become one part of the artistic movement for motivation in youth or new generation in your country and so than?

-...

 

10- How can you help our world become a better place to live?

-This question is quite broad. But I think we are subjects of our history and responsible for our actions. We don't need big actions to change things. Each one in their space, can perform small actions to make a difference. Art is a great instrument for change an extremely important tool in education, teaching and building citizenship.

 

11- Have you more word to say or suggestion for our readers?

What I have to say to our readers is that we value cultures, respect differences and never forget that knowledge is one of the greatest assets we can have.

Thank you

DRAWING LESSON
By Rodrigo Bro

 

With just one line,
sketch and expose
my wish.
Poems
come off my body
scales,
made feathers,
like petals.

Hand draws
like a boy's
who dreams and sings
on the warm sheets in the afternoon.

I analyze myself,
I take measures,
watch myself
and I represent myself
with a giant feeling
that flies in my chest.

I cancel myself
I undo myself
and I adjust.
But ever
I represent myself
as in the beginning
have done.
