by Tiago Azevedo
I was born in the Azores islands and influenced by that environment. I have
been drawing magical worlds and fantastic creatures since a very young age.
Latter I attended Art School for a period of three years however I decided to
graduate as an Architect.
Even though I was working as an architect by choice, those fantastic
creatures were screaming to get out.
So I finally decided to follow my passion and dedicate my full attention to the
artistic expression of my world.
Consequently my themes always revolve around Fantasy and Religion.
As a technique I use oil painting for its colour richness and jewel like effect.
At the moment I am working on an illustrated book based on my interpretation
of the Brothers Grimm Fairytales. This emerged out of my move to Germany
and my passion for German folk stories.
