Third’s work has always pushed the rooted limits of urban art. The inspiration comes, without a doubt, from the everyday urban culture. However he constantly tries to express his creativity beyond graffiti, mainly through illustration work.
His style highlights the realistic portrayal of three-dimensional structures. Such work comes from perfecting painting and human figure techniques. Frequently caricatured, his representations and compositions are definitely still within the realm of realistic drawing.
Third stands for the search of creativity, originality and perfection despite never doing so, only he can set his limits.
The artist follows the world’s constant evolution – motivation comes from day to day life, its habits and routines, which he then filters and processes.
“The guardian of the forest” is a new mural from Third, made during the last edition of Miscaros – Festival do Cogumelo (Alcaide, Fundão, Portugal).
The goal was to paint something related with the magical forest, that, along with mushrooms, is the theme of the Festival.
Third chose to represent the guardian of the forest, as a half-men/half-tree, that allowed him to work on the anatomy of the figure, one of his main interests. Also the texture of the wood and the expression of the face were an important part of the work.
The project was curated by Formas Efémeras.
Amazing wall Third!!
