We had the good fortune of connecting with RIGO LEON and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi RIGO, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Life is all about taking risks, the success is outside the confort zone, you need to take chances, do what you love and ask the universe for what you want in life.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My art ranges from abstract expressions of communication and social issues around the world to tribal silhouettes, a longtime source of inspiration for me is The Paper boats, a symbol of immigration, are often depicted in my work. A representation of the hopeful, but challenging journey that immigrants face, this connects with my surroundings growing up in Cuba during one of the worst time in the country’s history. Nothing is easy, I sacrifice a lot to get where I am today, worked very hard, consistently focused on what I want to project with my art. I learn that art is a responsibility to society

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I will take them to to eat authentic Italian food beautiful place in wynwood also Krudos in wynwood for sushi and coyo taco for some Latin deep house music in the back of a taco place and later to Santos Don Diablo in little Havana Calle 8

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
In my career as an artist and before, many people trusted and valued my vision and then over the years companies and organizations trusted me in the same way, it would be unfair for me to mention only some of these people or organizations, therefore I dedicate this shoutout to all those people who helped me to be where I am today and where I will be in the future.
