Based in Madrid, but born in Porto in 1981. I've studied a Fine Arts Degree, specialized in Painting and Plastic Arts. Lived in Austria, where I had an amazing Photography Course, then proceeded with a master degree Museum and Exhibition Management in Madrid.
I'm fascinated by nature and figurative drawing. I built my drawings with fine lines and I choose to work mainly with black and red color range.
An artist’s stroke is the purest form of creation, although it is simple, in theory, a single line that meanders across a paper, can convey powerful emotions.
The line, crucial in the drawing and creative process, is often unnoticed or hidden from our perception, in the final result of the works.
I just want to emphasize the line, through the deconstruction of the form, to reach its most basic and essential element, appearing by repetition and constancy.
I always carry a sketchbook during my walks or travels, some pencils and wax pastels. I try to draw images as I think them, not as I see them, often leading me to the absurd, creating a confrontation between the logical and the irrational.
My online diary featuring drawings can be followed on my Instagram account @bel_allegro or Facebook account @belaallegro
