I love to work in many different styles and techniques. My piece is a result of pencil work, vector, photoshop and (a lot) of textures. The idea behind it is that Mona Lisa is a painting of multiple layers readings. So I worked over the concept of layers, very complex and intricated. After I finished, Mona Lisa had an almost cat face. I should have added some ears. =)
This work was comissioned by a printing company of Curitiba, south of Brazil. The company name is, guess what, Monalisa.
Mucha Tinta (art collective from Curitiba) and ad agency TIF invited me to create a poster to promote a printing company called Monalisa. The subject was of course The Gioconda itself. It's hard to work over such reference. Mona Lisa is a painting with many metaphorical layers, so my idea was to work this concept.
