Chad Cardoza uses a variety of mediums to communicate his artistic point of view. He is known for incorporating paint, paper, wood, fabric, metal, foam, mannequins, skateboards and just about anything else he can get his hands on into his art. He draws his influence from his love of skateboarding and underground music. He started out making concert posters in the Tampa Bay area. They quickly stood out and were featured in "Swag 2: Rock posters of the 90s and beyond."
He has been in a variety of shows around the area and has been recognized both in the paper and on the radio for his unique work.
Born and raised in the area, Chad now resides in South Tampa with his wife Suzie and their dog Madi.
