Valdi Valdi, otherwise Thiago Rogério de Castro Furtado is originally from Florianópolis, a Brazilian island. He’s known in the urban art scene as ValdiValdi, and has been doing graffiti since 2006.
His fascination for coast culture and the custumes of the Portuguese and the Spanish matched perfectly with the graffiti urban culture, wich is also rich in content.
