What’s New:
Ugly Drawings

I imposed myself these exercises of freedom.
As I usually look for resemblance and tend to perfectionism, I've been loosing a lot of freedom to draw.
So I set apart any guidance or amendment, in order to error freely and do some “ugly drawings”.

I started with the enraged, greedy and grotesque, profoundly human characters from “Fleabag”, my favorite series of the moment, and set myself loose with the brushes and ink on watercolor paper. Some drawings diverged immensely from my object, but I love them all the same. 
And some came up really nice! Never the less, I find them very interesting.
Then, I started painting some politicians and world leaders in order to invest in some contemporary, actuality and political illustration. I also did some cultural icons and didn’t resist the temptation of portraying some friends too, although these are not fair pictures of their handsome features.
These are rough, quick drawings made with no previous sketches or studies and I do not correct them, in the sense that I can not undo the trace of ink on paper, so, I just go for it, wherever that leads me. It’s been refreshing and fun.

Check more ugly drawings here or in the “buy originals” section of this website.
And there are always new updates on my Instagram.

Permanent work:

On Pina

Based on Pina Bausch’s incredible choreographies, which work as paintings per se, I developed this small collection of acrylics on canvas (except for one oil).

Some works are not based on Pina's works directly, but are somehow influenced by her on my view of our surroundings. I call that small group "other dances"

All works available for purchase, unless expressed otherwise.
You can contact me by email at liaferreira.info@gmail.com
