Multi-layered digital art – a mélange of pop art and surrealism
Diogo Landô mainly creates his works with digital tools, combining photography, photo manipulation, collage and analogue, as well as digital painting. Consequently, several image planes are created, initially independent of each other, which Landô arranges, overlapping them, and formulates it into an overall picture in a partly intuitive, partly planned process.
In this way, he creates expressive works in numerous work steps, which, due to the visible multidimensionality, point to different levels of interpretation. The works, which are predominantly figurative, combine clear pop art elements with the dreamlike visual language of surrealism, which results in a contemporary and profound aesthetic.
In fact, the Portuguese pictorial works often seem like an aesthetic dream and, on closer inspection, reveal a deep look into the human individual.
