Advertising creative and all-round nice guy Mico Toledo has had a little bit of time on his hands recently and rather than fill that void with computer games and over-eating he’s created himself a latino alter-ego who creates imaginary, mystical national parks from found postcards – he’s called Ricardo Rodrigues. Sounds VERY weird, but actually it’s only a little bit odd and ultimately brilliant.
Amalgamating a mass of found material into carefully arranged compositions, Ricardo Rodrigues has pieced together some pretty stunning imaginary landscapes that fuse all the best bits of Yosemite, The Alps, summertime Switzerland and Scandinavia. It’s a beautifully executed project that conclusively solves the problem of global tourism’s effects on the environment – just put everything together in one place and stop faffing about. Job done!
