Diogo LANDÔ has studied Art and Communication (Design, Photography and Cinema) and graduated in Graphic Design from ESAP (Porto).
Working with different mediums such as Design, Photography, Comics or Video has led me to produce an aesthetic based on several inspirations and a blend of techniques, that we can categorize as Mix-media or Digital Art, alternating between digital and analogue mediums and producing images that are filled with expression and multidimensionality.
“Secret Garden” is a collection of fictional portraits, of imaginary and forgotten characters, between the past and the present, the real and the oneiric. Similarly to the human being, each “secret garden” is unique and complex, made by a multitude of impressions and emotions, evoking themes such as the relation between the then and the now, the immediate and the subsequent, the body, the emotions and the personal growth: the blossoming.
Diogo LANDÔ’s work has been focusing on the human pluridimensionality, in understanding the myths, the emotions and the primal feelings. It’s a work absent of time, usually surrounded by an environment that transcends reality and enters imagination, inviting the viewer to create an emotional and interpretative connection.
