Ricardo Cancado, aka VJ Eletroiman, is a Brazilian VJ who works with imagery inspired by Brazilian popular culture.
His work establishes an intercultural dialogue with the public and presents an authentic and complex universe through a hybrid language mixing video with other techniques including photography, drawing, 3D, and 2D animation.
The audiovisual artist has been developing the project “Representa Corisco” since the beginning of 2003. This explores political and social issues through the iconography of the “cangaço” movement and one of its characters: Corisco. This was an armed movement fighting the Brazilian elites during the 19th and 20th century.
In addition to his artistic work, VJ Eletroiman is the organizer of the Festival Visual Brasil, and the founder of Hybrid Project. Ricardo Cancado is 4 times winner of LPM VJ Torna.
