Cristiano Ronaldo: São Cristiano

This is the seventh 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 experiment with these treasures for long time. This is one of the first 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...
