Cristiano Ronaldo: O orgulho de Portugal
This is the first of a series of mosaic illustrations based on the great tradition of Azulejos. This 5 centuries old form of tile painting art is a typical part of Portugues (Spanish and Latin) tradition. I am experimenting with these visual treasures for long time. This is the first of my artworks based on the studies. A portrait of Cristiano Ronaldo, probably the biggest popular hero of contemporary Portugal and one of my favorite athletes. This guys is not just an incredible soccer player. He's is much more than this. He's an artist, a show man, a working class hero, a role model, a hard working entrepreneur...
