When creating my portrait of ¿Teo? I wanted to capture a moment in time with out having the image feel static. I was able to achieve a lively depiction of him through the wildness of his hair and the expression on his face. I made the decision to keep this portrait black and white because I think it suits ¿Teo?'s music and artistic aesthetic and further adds a layer of intensity.
For a lot of my portraits, I draw inspiration from Baroque and Rococo portraiture. Artists of that time were able to create illumination, emotion, drama, and symbolism through their use of light and dark and progressive color palettes.
