Help art express my soul

My name is Cassiano Grandi, I am Brazilian and I live in Sao Paulo. The art is manifested in my life since childhood, when my teacher father corrected tests and I drew on his side. I’ve always been in love of drawing, painting and music. At 15 I started my career as a model, which touched my interest in photography. At 20, I started my first jobs as a photographer and makeup artist, which are my main profession to this day. My days are quite run, I work and live to learn more, because the fashion world and very competitive, which requires a continuous updating. Today I’m 32 years old, I feel the need to have a take a time to myself…breathe! Then the desire for drawing and painting resurfaced. Unfortunately our country is experiencing a crisis, which makes it unfeasible investments, which makes me study by myself…

Story from Diane Stolz

Story from Diane Stolz

Foundation Drawing Art I grew up in NYC with composer parents and artsy grandmother. Art has always been a hallmark of my existence along with the piano and great composers. The two have a significant part in my life! My sister took the subway into NYC from Forest Hills to study art at the Art Students League when she was 11 and we moved out on the island when I reached that age and never got to study in NYC at that time. As I grew and held jobs, I took evening courses and Sat courses and workshops in Watercolor with Zoltan Szabo,and as the years passed I attended the Artist’s Magazine Weekends and Plein Air Conventions! I had classes with Rob Liberace, Daniel Gerhartz and one amazing workshop with David Leffel! I love the classic approach and have little…

Most of my initial drawings were in graphite and looking back at them not too pleasing but were showing signs of improving, it is only in the past year or so that I have experimented with other media such as watercolour, coloured pencils, ink and pastels…
