New Category – Art / Nova Categoria – Art

People express themselves in different ways. In my case, one of the best ways I have of doing it is through drawing and painting. I’ve been doing it since I was a little child and couldn’t even decide if I could grab my coloring pencils better with my left or my right hand. If you’re already following me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen some of my illustrations and also photos of street art so this new category – Art – shouldn’t come as a surprise to you 🙂 You can expect posts about illustrations, street art, digital art, new artists I’ve acknowledged and others that inspire me. I hope you like this category as much as I do and let me know what you think about this new chapter on Dissecting The Look.

For the first post I’d like to introduce you Dorothee Golz, an artist who transforms Renaissance paintings into contemporary digital art. The process of transformation, of course, is complicated and questions like ‘will the final results be odd because of the contrast between Renaissance and the XXI century?’ or ‘will the first paintings be ruined?’. Somehow Dorothee gives another life to historical characters and results couldn’t be more amazing. The final work shows some of the most iconic faces in the history of art wearing contemporary clothes proving us that they are, in fact, timeless.

Her work is exactly the kind of digital art I’m passionate about. The kind of art I’d love having decorating – or better, giving life to my house. Let me know your thoughts on this contrasting work of art 🙂

As pessoas expressam-se de formas diferentes. No meu caso, uma das melhores formas que tenho de me exprimir é através do desenho e da pintura. É assim desde a altura em que ainda nem sabia bem se me dava mais jeito agarrar os lápis de cor com a mão esquerda ou com a direita. Quem me segue no instagram já deve ter visto alguns dos meus esboços, bem como fotos de ‘arte de rua’, pelo que esta nova categoria – Arte – não será uma surpresa assim tão grande 😉 Nesta nova categoria podem esperar posts sobre ilustrações, ‘street art’, arte digital, novos artistas que vou descobrindo e artistas que provavelmente conhecem e cujo trabalho adoro. Espero que gostem tanto desta categoria como eu e que me digam o que pensam sobre este novo capítulo do Dissecting The Look 🙂 

Para o primeiro post desta nova categoria escolhi uma artista que descobri recentemente – Dorothee Golz. As suas obras consistem em transposições de personagens de quadros renascentistas conhecidos para roupas e cenários contemporâneos. O processo de transformação, como não podia deixar de ser, é complexo e suscita delicadas questões como ‘será que o resultado final vai ser estranho devido ao contraste entre as duas épocas?’ ou ‘estará o quadro original a ser estragado?’. A verdade é que Dorothee dá uma nova vida a personagens históricas e os resultados não podiam ser mais incríveis. O resultado final é a prova da intemporalidade destas personagens. Este é precisamente o tipo de arte digital que adoro e o tipo de arte que gostaria de ter a decorar – ou, melhor dizendo, a dar vida, à minha casa. Que acham? Pode a dama com o arminho vestir Prada?

  1. Hola Guapa!! I LOVE your new category!! I am totally into streetart & co and am very glad that you decided to create this category! And I have seen your beautiful drawings on Instagram and let me tell you, I was more than impressed. Being able to draw is such an amazing way to express your creativity ❤ I haven't heard of Dorothee Golz before (is she German btw, the name sounds like?) and when I read in your post, that she transforms renaissance paintings into contemporary digital art I was first a bit skeptical as I had no Idea how she would realize this, but as I scrolled further down and saw her pieces: WOW!!!! LOVE IT!!! Such an amazing work. Simply just the idea of this is brilliant! Thanks for this great and inspirational post my dear, am already looking forward to the next one! Have an awesome week!

    1. Thank you so much dear! I’m so glad you liked it! I must admit, I was a bit afraid about this new category… But so far so good! Most of them I don’t even finish… I wish I had more time to do it! She is babe, she’s German and currently living in Vienna! I found some of her paintings on Pinterest so I wasn’t even aware she had done so many. I even opened a tab with the original paintings to compare because I was so amazed!
      Have a lovely day my dear, big kisses 😘
