CHICO CARUSO

[ São Paulo: 1949 ] Chico Caruso is characterized by the synthesized caricatures, humourous and very often visceral, with which his draughtsman’s line plumbed the depths of power. He stands out for his aspect of parody, which distinguished him from his colleague Henfil at the time they worked at the magazine Pasquim. In this way, he portrayed the critical universe of his art in the expression of his characters. Relating facts of daily political life to universal elements and personalities, his work is consolidated by its cutting singularity. Today, he’s considered to be one of the greatest political caricaturists in Brazil.
