Rafael has studied art and design at the University of Illinois at Chicago where he received his masters. There, he absorbed the acute attention to form making associated with typography, photography, and painting, subsequently refining his own visual and conceptual vocabulary that emerged through his focus on the points of intersection between architecture, design, and art. He wants to contribute to the design discourse by focusing on cultural institutions role in society.
