Redbank, New Jersey
This portrait has a powerful impact, it's colors and movement combined with the face expression, creates a wonderful street art. This sensual image try to transmit the charming look that our beloved gives upon us. The moment that nothing else matters, and your only response is to let be captured by it.
The wall was very close to an art supplie shop at RedBank, full until the top with many kind of ink and paintings. We met great people over there, who loved street art and was very happy to met brazilian artists for the first time. I confess that they got kind surprised when the ink splash as beeing made. I think that is not a very common thing to do with a nice portrait art, to cover it with dirty and mad splashes.
The secret technique
Many people wonder how do I create that level of realistic portrait proportions. So I created a video to show the secrets of street art.
To paint should be sinonimous of your real felling, there are no secret techniques. Try that next time you create a piece of art, whatever you feel, just extract that into the wall or canvas. It's simple as difficult. Antagonism.
