Mixed Media/Urban Artist
Roberto Janz / A.K.A. BetoJanz
Brazilian artist based in Toronto. Inspired by rock’n’roll and skateboard movements, my work brings the energy and attitude of these cultures. From carving wood to graphic arts, my mindset is to go for it and DIY.

After moving to Toronto in 2014, I also had the opportunity to collaborate in some projects from the alternative high school program Oasis Skateboard Factory, where I discovered an aptitude for mentoring the youth, through the creative and transformative world of the arts. Through this I became an Artist Mentor from the Toronto District School Board in 2017.
