Post-Graduation in Plastic Arts - Painting in Watercolor, by Faculdade Santa Marcelina, with the monograph From the intimacy of watercolor to the explosion of outdoors, São Paulo, 1998.

As a graphic designer, he produced posters, folders, catalogs, illustrations and book covers.

Gilberto Habib de Oliveira writes about Cassiano and his work... The artist is above all about painting, and if this art is the art of light par excellence, his character is nothing more than a rhetorical creation, one of the most beautiful and original pictorial creations of recent times; built to exalt painting at the same time. In this sense, Cassiano's choice to remain faithful almost exclusively to watercolor is made with the aim of broadening our possibilities of feeling and reflecting on what painting represents today, showing, through his characters, how pure, original and surprisingly poetic these forms can be.
