POLO DE MARCO MAGAZINE – TIAGO AZEVEDO
Conceptual Realism. Cartoon-tainted abstract surrealism. Low Brow. There are quite a few terms to describe the subversive art form that arose from the 1970s underground comic book world, but there is no one like Tiago Azevedo, one of its most practiced and passionate disciples. The artist, based in Germany but raised in Portugal, 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.” ⚜ www.tiagoazevedo.com ⚜
