“Both Rosenbaum’s affable, burly, tattooed persona and his sensual, maximalist vocabulary speak to a broad spectrum of Brazilians—from ladies who lunch and shop on Óscar Freire, São Paulo’s most expensive street, to the masses who watch him on TV. In eclectic, vibrant mash-ups of color, texture and materials, he takes the glamour of fashion to the masses and brings the inventiveness and complexity of Brazilian popular culture to the elite. Lowbrow regional folk art and craft elements are thrown together with highbrow design references in such disparate things as a six-reais vinyl table-cloth, a Vogue magazine editorial, or celebrity chef Alex Attala’s Dalva e Dito restaurant.”
