LESS IS MORE-ANTIONIO CARLOS SOARES
Hayden Williams has become a very fascinating
attraction after I came across his illustrations of the Disney princesses in
revolutionary ways, his representation of celebrities on the red carpet and
general fashion collections. You cannot but fall to in love with the mannerisms
of his characters and the realistic elegance of his creations.
Antonio Carlos Soares is yet another
brilliant illustrator who came into the world of fashion through his love for
painting.Born on July 4, 1973 In Portugal and currently living in Oporto,
Porto, Portugal, his illustrations are executed with water colour and have an
almost solid touch of magical realism.His illustrations explore simplicity in a
whole new dimension as his paintings are laid against
pain backdrops that pull the focus to the intensity yet mild creations. When asked by Jenna Mcarthur about his inspiration for exploring Fashion illustration, Mr Carlos Soares asserted, “It was never my intention to be a fashion illustrator. I took a degree in painting but always liked drawing. Illustration has always been the area to which I have devoted for pure pleasure so it is something that just happened naturally. I collaborated with a Portuguese designer Nuno Baltazar and from that moment I started to develop my personal project to illustrate Portuguese fashion designers. I believe that fashion illustration is a perfect medium for telling stories, and I build my narrative, based on the amazing work of fashion designers and is an area that I have been developing these last few years because, and above all, I like fashion!"
The Portuguese fashion illustratorAntónio Soares creates, like the most sublime artist, stories that transcend the paper and mere visual attraction. Soares' art illustrates pieces by Portuguese contemporary fashion designers, such as Alexandra Moura, Luís Buchinho, Miguel Vieira, Nuno Baltazar and Ricardo Dourado. I particularly love the finishing on each piece as it resonated an emergence that is yet flat and 3 dimensional at the same time.
“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.”
