Diogo Duarte’s Psychological Portraits

Diogo Duarte’s Psychological Portraits

Join me next week in seeing the incredible work of Diogo Duarte.  I am exceptionally privileged to own a piece of his incredible art, which hangs in pride and place within my living room.  Come along I promise you will not be disappointed.

London-based Portuguese photographer Diogo Duarte is reinventing the way portraiture can be built into the very essence of a person’s home by putting client self-discovery at the heart of interior design. By combining uniquely personal stories with his lavish and innovative artistic vision, Diogo creates ‘psychological portraits’ that are one of a kind works of art bringing to life what matters most to his clients.

According to Duarte, “My images are my client’s emotions, hopes and dreams splashed on a wall. They are interventions in living environments that provoke conversations about the personality and life story of the person in the portrait”. Internationally renowned photographer David LaChapelle has called Duarte’s work “vibrant, exciting and emotionally powerful”.

OPEN NOW – THE NAKED ARTIST

FLUX Exhibition produces large-scale art events that have generated a huge following. They are now delighted to announce an exciting new venture FLUX PRESENTS which will showcase the work of individual or small groups of artists at interesting locations across the UK.

The first FLUX PRESENTS will showcase the edgy work of Suzie Pindar Aka The Naked Artist at a derelict house in South London.

Pindar is an artist that constantly evaluates the world and the wide range of emotions that are evoked from daily life.  Pindar Feels the need to make sense of everything and capture her observations in a way that she can express and later process.

Pindar works on themes that explore memories and moments, happiness, sadness and self-reflection.   First seizing the time with words so that the immediacy and her feelings are captured. Pindar later creates imagery that perfectly evokes her thoughts surrounding her experience.

Today Pindar’s art is much more explorative in the physical sense, she now uses her body much more to express thoughts rather than just using paper, this combination ensures maximum impact and adds a strength and boldness to her work.

Pindar produces Art that does indeed reveal ‘the naked’ truth.  Embracing experiences whether good or bad and documenting them in her bold self-expressive way.  This is work that is honest, that is bursting with feelings and memories, making the ordinary interesting.
