Roberto Custodio

“Roberto Custodio is a self-taught artist from Sao Paulo, Brazil. His complex mixed-media collage works often feature saints, religious icons, gods, and goddesses…

Brazil is considered one of the most religious countries in Latin America with the majority of the population identifying as followers of Roman Catholicism.
