I am in the Azores Islands, sailing from one island to another and I see so many inspiring things, architectures, landscape, graffiti, and also museum .
In Horta I went to the post office where beside mail they sell books , children’s book from local writers and artists . Among the others I found one very interesting: TOMAZ com Z illustrated by Urbano which is mostly a portuguese painter and sculptor; I like his colorful free shapes and technique.
And surfing on internet looking for some info about him I found an italian website with cultural subjects and among the other a post with beautiful illustration for Pinocchio made by another painter and sculptor italian Mimmo Paladino
In Terceira the third island of Azores I visited the regional museum based in the old Franciscan convent and in the cloister i saw the Alice’s rabbit in azulejos made by Anton Dacosta another Azorean artist for an underground station in Lisbon.
I like the fresh quick line and sketches .
