Sergio Rodrigues: The Selby (and me)


When I saw sweet Sergio's face on The Selby I couldn't help but share his photos since visiting his office was such a fond memory for me. Before I met him on my trip to Rio (Psst, he's in Rio not São Paulo, Selby) Everywhere my dear friend Jorge took the Mister and I, I kept seeing Sergio's pieces everywhere and calling them out. And Jorge would say... "oh that's another one of Sergio Rodrigues' pieces."  I was obviously drawn to their form and materials. Then Jorge surprised us with a visit to his studio.

He was so warm and inviting for someone who literally just stopped by unannounced. He stopped everything to show us around his studio and show us all of his prototypes and what he was currently working on. He even kept a reporter waiting in the other room. ( I felt kinda bad about that one.) And before we left he asked to see my sketchbook and then signed it. (bottom photo) He's surely one of Brazil's living treasures.

p.s. Some of my sketches while in Brazil
