RESIN MAGAZINE “FAIRY TALES,” The Acclaimed Series by Pop Surrealist Painter TIAGO AZEVEDO 🦋
Tiago Azevedo, the acclaimed pop surrealist painter whose aesthetic has been signaled out for its utter uniqueness and originality, will bring his “Fairy tales” collection to U.S. audiences after a global exhibition tour in 2019. Inspired by the original version of the Brothers Grimm Fairy tales, the collection includes 10 paintings of beloved characters from fables throughout the last 100 years. Azevedo will showcase the series in a soon-to-be-announced U.S. exhibition.
“I have always been passionate about fairytales and these are deeply rooted in German Folklore,” said the artist. “During my stay in Germany I became immersed in its culture and felt an immense impulse to bring my version of these characters into life.”
Included in the collection are portraits of Cinderella, The Frog Princess, Sleeping Beauty, Mother Holle (Two Sisters), The Six Swans (the sixth), Mary’s Child (the praying virgin), The Hares Bride (the hare), Snow White, Rapunzel and Red Riding Hood. “Each of these characters came to be purely by subconscious intuition instead of a conscious choice,” Azevedo said. “Usually, my painting process begins with an image that forms in my mind and that then my job is to translate it onto the canvas.” 🦋 www.tiagoazevedo.com 🦋
