Sintra, Portugal

I am a Portuguese visual artist. (Visual Arts Master degree Painting, 1997). I mainly do portraits, caricatures (traditional and digital) and commissioned work (live on events or by photo). I can draw and paint with all materials and surfaces, objects or sizes.

Rui draws live portraits and live caricatures during all kinds of private or public event. The average time for one live caricature is about 5 minutes or less and one live portrait takes 8-10 minutes. With a photo, it all depends on techniques, materials, surfaces, complexity and number of people (the reference photos must be analyzed first).
