Rogerio Duarte and the Tropicalia Movement

Recent exhibition of Rogerio Duarte’s work at the Narrows Gallery

Rogerio Duarte is a Brazilian graphic designer, musician, poet and philosopher. He is also considered to be one of the founding fathers and the main intellectual force behind the Tropicalia movement in the late 1960s. During this period he designed album covers for many of the great names of Brazilian popular music, such as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, João Gilberto and Jorge Ben. His covers are among my all time favorites, not to mention the records themselves!
