AKACORLEONE x UP!

Last week was the launch of the new VOLKSWAGEN car, the UP! and for that ocasion, it was created a new space, that will have concerts, movie screenings, right in the center of Lisboa ( Av. da Liberdade, right next to cinema S. Jorge) where i have a big illustration featured on the space!
it was an adventure this project, with a tight schedule and lots of characters to do, it took a while to paint this 6×2 m pannel but i was super glad with the end result!

check out the UP! pop up store and the cool events going on for the next month, the car is awesome, so is the space!

thanks again my love Angela for the patience, for struggling with the cold, for helping me on each step of the project and for looking so damn cool with a glass of wine!
by the way, here´s a fun (not so much at the time) fail during the work in progress…somebody forgot to take off the protective layer, we only figured that out at the middle of the process,hahaah!

WINE TALKS & ARTS /// BOA É A VIDA MELHOR É O VINHO.

finally, the photos and videos from the Wine Talks & Arts group show featuring my artwork “BOA É A VIDA MELHOR É O VINHO.”

BOA É A VIDA, MELHOR É O VINHO ///WINE TALKS & ARTS (making of.)

Last weekend ended my last group show, WINE TALKS & ARTS, the event was amazing, with cool artists, great wine and a beautiful gallery!

i set a big challenge for myself on this exhibition, i got the idea to create a 4×2 meter wood pannel engraved with some machines i had never seen before, on a technique i had never worked in my life and for making it even more interesting, i drew a puzzle like lettering to illustrate on the pannel…

thanks to the huge help from Claudio Cigarro and my partner in crime Kruella (who had quite a challenge herself for this show), i got to start and finish this artwork on 4 days, stressfull as hell, i won some bruses, not much sleep, multiple problems along the way, but the final result was worth the while, the feedback was awesome and now i look forward to work on this technique again!
photos of the exhibition very soon…

thanks Cigarro and Angela!
