Tobias Lima Lopes Pinto (1991) is a contemporary artist who mixes hyperrealistic paintings with different styles and techniques.
Starting to drew from a very young age Tobias Pinto early discovered his passion to experiment and to express himself in his creativity. After forming his career in the creative field including studying design and technology and working as a tattoo artist he finally found his deep passion for painting. “I always felt that that my art had to grow, I felt that for me the mediums of tattooing were limiting me to express myself freely in my creative process. Working on oil paintings felt like a liberation to me from the very first beginning.”
While painting hyperrealistic oil paintings and mixing different techniques and materials Tobias Pinto tries not to focus on a certain style or movement. "It is essential for me to go where my inspiration leads me, free from ideals, the idea of perfection or any goals. Sometimes I feel inspired to paint a certain colour, sometimes I want to express a feeling or tell a story. I try to keep my art as “free” as it can be and bring my inspiration into form.”
