2017 International Art Festival
Artist Official Entries
I was born in the Azores islands and influenced by that environment I have been drawing magical worlds and fantastic creatures since a very young age. Later I attended Art School for a period of three years however I decided to graduate as an Architect. Even though I was working as an architect by choice, those fantastic creatures were screaming to get out. So I finally decided to follow my passion and dedicate my full attention to the artistic expression of my world. Consequently my themes always revolve around Fantasy and Religion. As a technique I use oil painting for its color richness and jewel like effect. At the moment I am working on an illustrated book based on my interpretation of the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales. This emerged out of my move to Germany and my passion for German folk stories.
