USE LESS /// JOIO EXHIBITION EXPERIMENTA (making of…)

This has been a crazy week but my latest artwork is finally finished!
so many logistic problems for starters, we had to find tons of useless technologic objects, bring them to Lisbon, carry them to a second floor that looked like we were climbing  the stairs of that lord of the rings castle, to be on a very beautiful but closed space painting all the objects for 5 days, i can honestly say that my lungs are now in rojo fiebre color. The space is amazing, the old building of the Court of Boa Hora, a decay building full of abandoned court rooms, old files spread all over, a writers delight…

first step was done after a few long days, but then both our laptops got sabotaged by lazy battery chrgers, and then we got the horrible news, we had no video projector…
thanks to the fine gents from UAT, we got some oldshool flavor retroprojector that was good enough for the circle but not for the lettering, the nightmare had returned!

well, after lots of stressful moments, we finally got this piece finished, not thanks to the evil lord of the court of Boa Hora, aka the ugly girl with the moustache…

Thank you my love for all the hard work and patience for my panic attacks*

September 28th don´t miss the opening of JOIO and of the Experimenta Design Festival!

Amazing poster artwork by Kruella!

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!

 

SPRAY KID /// PUSH CLICK SHOW!

these last few weeks have been hectic, 3 shows in 15 days, working non-stop, but i have to say, doing what i really love, illustrating and experimenting for shows in cool galleries, with dope artists, around great friends!
this artwork is called “SPRAY KID” and it was created for the Push Click Group Show at the Montana Shop & Gallery Lisboa! Gotta love 8-bit graphics…

i also have a cool 3 color screenprint for sale at the gallery, but i will post very soon some pics of it!

if you ask me if i could choose another job what would it be, i would reply:

Movie poster artist, especialized on horror movies, because even if the film sucks, the artwork is always dope as hell!

here´s just a small sample of some genial artwork for horror movie posters!

there are some classics here, my personal favorite movie here got to be Plan 9 From Outer Space, a master work from the “Worst movie maker ever” Ed Wood!!! if you haven´t seen it, run to a video store, rent it, make some microwave popcorn, turn the lights down (for ambiance) and then…laugh as there´s no tomorrow!
