his visual language is varied, sometimes preferring abstraction and others the explicit portrayal of ideas through text or representation. the ‘sand drawings’ ask viewers to pause, and reflect on the beauty of life — as well as its fragility. due to their location, dougados’ pieces are often gone within hours, leaving only a blank slate for the next creation. each is extensively photographed, and select images are available through the artist as limited-edition aluminum prints.
