    Santiago, I stumbled upon your blogspot and was immediately drawn into your surreal and imaginary worlds. I was impressed and pleased to see that the places you exhibit have quite an international list of artists displaying pieces. It must be so exciting to show with other artists from all over the world. I am also an artist. I photograph and love to travel. These are my two passions. My style is sometimes simply ‘straight’ photography, while I also manipulate multiple images to create an entirely new world. One of my favorite art forms is magical realism and I try to play off of that genre with my photography. Surrealism and magical realism have a lot of similar qualities. The main, I would say, is the altering of the familiar into something distorted and warped. Have you had the opportunity to exhibit outside of your native Portugal? I applaud your work and truly enjoyed visiting your blog. I wish you the best and hope you can continue to be exposed to many other artists .
