Thiago Pixels: How surrealism art converge with Digital and contemporary art

Addyzeal artist Thiago Pereira commonly attributed as Thiago Pixels is a  digital artist fascinated by turning imagination into vibrant images, his style is surrealism with a contemporary touch but never leaving the roots of past painters. His greatest inspiration is the Rene Magritte that brings minimalism and illusion to the paintings.

Rene Magritte was an internationally acclaimed surrealist artist of all time. He used to say that, “My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, ‘What does that mean?’ It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing, it is unknowable.”

Thiago’s  favorite color appears to be blue as most of his arts have blooming blue. The subjects he chooses are ordinary natural objects and fuse them with the artificial subjects, sometimes giving a clear message.

Through his creativity, Thiago seeks to promote contemporary and surrealism art through his illustration style. He is on a mission to spread good vibes and good taste across the world from Brazil. His work is also available on other networks such as on colab55.

We’re proud to offer Thiago’s work on Addyzeal and wanted to introduce you to the man behind the art.
