Toninho Euzebio is an artist who imparts a unique touch to the iconic land marks of Brazil, presenting an unique side of the country that offers viewers more than the architectural marvels, rainforests and beautiful beaches.
This artist fused photography and sketching to give birth to certain whimsical landscapes that are complete with rocket ships, acrobats and giants.
The process is incredibly simple. Toninho Euzebio carries a Moleskine notebook with him wherever he travels. And, he begins sketching whenever something inspires him to tap into his creative potential. Finally, he utilizes the camera of his phone to click a picture of his sketch along with a particular landmark.
An art director and illustrator, Euzebio says that his idea is not really unique and that is a quite a common advertising procedure. However, he had received positive responses from his pals once he had shared pictures on social media platforms just for fun last year.
During April, Euzebio created photographs that exhibited the historical buildings and landmarks of Brazil in order to pay tribute to the 56th anniversary of Brazil.
He said that the first thing he does is invest his time in researching about the history of a certain place or building and from here, he gets an idea. But, for this purpose, he uses the Internet that helps him extract the information.
Oscar Niemeyer, Brazilian architect inspires him to a great extent, and his buildings are present in the country’s capital. He confessed that working with older buildings are more challenging as it takes a longer time to create the architectural details.
Toninho Euzebio said that he tries to complete the drawing in about 25 minutes. And, he makes efforts to draw faster with animals as they might just wander away.
The artist spends a lot of time walking about, hunting for new ideas. He has discovered that mornings, after he has taken his daughters to school are the best times that help him gather fresh ideas. At times, even his daughters offer him suggestions.
He added that he tries to work with a tree, a trash can, a statue or anything that catches his fancy.
Initially, Euzebio started doing this kind of job as a hobby. However, with time, it became his regular job. His creations have been featured in a pop-up shop and small exhibitions.
