Traditional Art by amartinsdebarros Traditional Art by amartinsdebarros
As an artist I dedicate most of my time, if not a large part of my life to painting. I regard myself as a disciplined painter, both technically and artistically, yet I never allow conventional boundaries to constrain my inspiration or my creativity. I believe that life and death are closely linked to the subconscious and it is through this link that I find my inspiration. People generally consider me to be a complicated, even tortured character; my search for inspiration in everyday life requires a restless mind combined with the contradictory but complementary characteristics of humility and megalomania. An intense anguish drives me to search out the subtle subjective differences between beauty and ugliness. The visions I transpose onto canvass in my work today are inspired and guided by my life experiences, each piece of work is created to defy comparison, stimulate contemplation and generate great visual pleasure. Ever since childhood I have had a devoted passion for the great Italian Renaissance and Flemish masters; they have always been part of my creative existence and are the motivation for my exacting perfectionist style.

How? How do you make it look so real? How do you make your painting so deep and complicated? How do you have such a great passion and motivation for this kind of art?
Why are you so good????
Forgive me...I'm just a bit excited and emotional when I saw someone as good as this.

I have always had a passion for the great Italian Renaissance masters, as well. I am a creative "type" but not really talented. I have great respect for true artists such as yourself. Wonderful work!

from your comment i think you need to simplify your way of thinking. But then again most great artists in history i have heard of are a little nutty so if someone tells you that just smile and act like you have some weird nervous tick.

"I believe that life and death are closely linked to the subconscious and it is through this link that I find my inspiration. People generally consider me to be a complicated, even tortured character".

That part realy speaks to me.. your words are even better than the work itself.
Tho I think your verry improved artist and have become really skillked through the years. I myself hope to envolve and never stop working just like persons as you. You must know the words you wrote here some of 'em fit with me and all of 'em inspire and motivate me. I want to thank you for that.
Thank you.

I can relate to your drive to put such thought into your work. You do a fine job of telling a story with each piece - keep up the good work (I can't wait to see more).

commenting on ur discription : trying to come up with new ideas and creativity itself consumes lots of my time my brain time thinking and thinking trying to observe here and there blending the opposites thats one of the examples .... what consumes energy trying to deal with daily life and whatever accompanies it from a very different perspective ... as i live in lebanon sometimes they think im a looney guy ...

surreal smiles*
