Rodrigo de Toledo, a professor of visual communication at Northern Arizona University, created his own world—a fantasy mythological world of deities and creatures—then intertwined it with references to daily life in the city of Flagstaff. The Brazilian-American visual artist and designer spent the years between 2005 and 2018 building this world, then he put it into a book, called “Chronicles of Entanglement.”

Now, that book and some of the art enshrined in its pages will be on display at the Flagstaff Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery, with de Toledo on hand to sign books and answer questions about his fantastic creations. The opening reception and book launch will be from 5-9 p.m. Friday at the gallery. The exhibition will run April 6-28. The gallery is open noon to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. The Flagstaff Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery is located at 215 S. San Francisco St.

de Toledo, born in Rio de Janiero, teaches and works on the moving edge of digital media. He has worked with many clients, artists, advertising agencies, design studios, production houses, scientists and marketing consulting firms as a designer and has worked on projects with motion graphics, experience design, TV commercials, printed publications, web sites and interactive multimedia.
