Rigo 23 (b. 1966, Portugal) is a muralist, painter and political artist who lives and works in San Francisco, California. He has exhibited his work internationally for over twenty years, placing murals, paintings, sculptures, and tile work in public situations where viewers are encouraged to examine their relationship to their community, their role as unwitting advocates of public policy or their place on a planet occupied by many other living things. Rigo’s works act as both artworks and as thoughtful public interventions. The artist holds a BFA from the San Francisco Institute of Art, and MFA from Stanford University.
