João Figueiredo: 'Don't tell me the truth.'

As you might have noticed from my post about Barnaby Barford's porcelain figurine creations I find it very interesting when artists and designers alike re imagine and give new meanings to objects, paintings are eyes are so used to perceiving. Here is the work of João Figueiredo; biographical paintings that tell a part of a life of the portrayed personalities. The artist searches the pages of History books for the stories and legends that go beyond History. His art is a process of deconstruction and construction of classical images.
