I’m An 18-Year-Old Artist From Portugal And I Like Merging Unexpected Objects To Create Surreal Art
I’ve always been fascinated by arts, but I only discovered photography through Instagram at the age of 15. At the beginning I took simple photos with my mobile phone, but soon I realized I wanted to learn more. As my interest in photography grew, I started to search and try new techniques, leading me to Photoshop.
The first image I edited on Photoshop was published in March, 2015. Since then it’s been a long way. Everything I know I learned by myself, watching tutorials about Photoshop on Youtube.
Every day I try to improve my skills and attempt new concepts. I found in photo manipulation a daily challenge to deconstruct and reconstruct my own reality which I post on my Instagram account.
For the last two years, I’ve been composing surreal images merging unexpected objects, figures and locations using real-life photographs. I try to create a dream-like world through my images where everything is possible. I believe there’s no limit to imagination and creativity.
At the moment I’m living in Lisbon, Portugal and studying at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon (Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade de Lisboa) majoring in Multimedia Art.
