Mr. Cavalcanti has a degree in graphic design from San Diego City College and a BFA in

Painting from the San Diego Art Institute.  He also studied art at San Diego's Mesa

College and music at Portland State University.  He states he is enthralled by

architectural structures, organic forms, spiritual symbolism, and world religions.  He

works in an abstracted style with traditional media: painting, drawing, printmaking, and

acoustic music.  Mr. Cavalcanti carves out, describes, and suggests original spaces with

bold and sensitive markings that evoke scapes he leaves us to decipher for ourselves.
