“His preferred method is oil painting “because it allows me to work with multiple layers and achieve the transparency effect I desire,” the artist says. “It also provides contrast and vibrancy of colors that would be difficult to achieve with any other technique. Oil also dries a lot slower, so this gives me time to work on details.”
“Painting is a way to say everything I want, everything that fascinates and inspires me in one single image,” continues the artist. “I have an idea of a particular subject, then comes a blurred image on my mind that I convert into a quick sketch to capture how I want it to be, this is the most creative part, then when it is time to paint, that turns out to be a sequence of technical steps that end in a finished canvas. It is a laborious process with a lot of attention to detail, expression, and texture.”

“In his third collection, artist Tiago Azevedo has based his surreal portraits on real people for the first time. Historical Figures is a seven-piece series depicting people like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, Marie Antoinette, Napoleon, and Queen Elizabeth in Azevedo’s signature style. “I paint mostly portraits of imaginary characters that touch me the most. I have always been passionate about fables,” he explains. Naturally, this new project was liberating. “I do not have to think about how the character will be… The image just comes to me in my mind, all I have to do is to gather a series of techniques to translate it to the canvas.”
Azevedo, who is now based in Germany, was born and raised in Portugal. Though painting always interested him, social pressure led him to pursue a more “stable” career as an architect. Once he became established in the field, he returned to his first love. “I discovered that...

“Then your tail will divide and shrink until it becomes what the people on earth call a pair of shapely legs. But it will hurt; it will feel as if a sharp sword slashed through you. Everyone who sees you will say that you are the most graceful human being they have ever laid eyes on, for you will keep your gliding movement and no dancer will be able to tread as lightly as you. But every step you take will feel as if you were treading upon knife blades so sharp that blood must flow. I am willing to help you, but are you willing to suffer all this?"

“The artist uses pop culture, fantasy, fables, religion and even works by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen to influence his artwork, which blends classical techniques from the Baroque and Pre-Raphaelite with contemporary concepts, like his unmistakable signature: wildly manipulated eyes, whose dimensions he alters because “it’s the perfect way to directly transfer to the canvas the emotions I want to convey.” He will be exhibiting in New York this fall and winter.”

Hi my friends, here I am with the finished painting of Dolly Parton, this one is part of my Celebrity series. I decided to paint her because apart from admiring her doll-like and idealized beauty I really love the joyful way she lives life and her positive attitude towards any problem. Despite her looks being considered artificial, she is one of the most authentic and unapologetic celebrities out there. I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day.
