Rómulo Santa Rita
With Portuguese, Angolan, and Mozambican DNA, Rómulo Santa Rita was born in Lisbon in 1980 and devoted his training and career to the audiovisual.
As an autodidact, he moved to Luanda in 2011, where he found the inspiration that helped define his urban interventions as visual expressions of life and thought. These are then materialized through compositions based on alternative materials such as cardboard, books with stains of acrylic paint and gouache, and pieces of magazines and papers, which he carefully selects in accordance with the specific political, social, and cultural topics addressed.
For many years his work remained guarded under the realm of private life.
However, Rómulo has increasingly been affirming himself in the sphere of activism, having recently created works of tremendous impact using the “Paper Street Art” technique.
