Tiro - Optical

“Tiro – Optical” is the attempt to create a post-photographic photorealistic painting.
This series comes from the urban landscape of Porto. The intention is to produce paintings with various levels of reception, to promote active contemplation. Recovering images of the romanticism of Porto, the attention is in the places of the city where the wild cohabits with the human.
Returning to the realistic tone of the century. XIX, and similar to the photorealists of the 20th century. XX, I try to construct images whose rigor is linked to the details of reality, but “based not on the direct vision of the real but on a language elaborated on previous images” (Maeyer 1978)
