We’re celebrating in style this holiday weekend with 35% off of everything in our online gallery. Not sure what to purchase? Why not take a look at some of our newest art?

Award Winning artist Maria Cecilia de São Thiago, is a photographer whom resides in Brazil, South America. São Thiago’s photographs are exquisite and allegorical in nature. Their vitality is instrumental in pulling the viewer into a very intimate world chronicling the self and beyond.  Mysticism and spirituality have long informed São Thiago’s practice and she is refreshingly transparent about her work.  She once told me, “my photos carry in each of them everything that I have learned, what I have lived, and what I have suffered”.

We have all brushed up against the sublime feeling of wonder, with sudden realisation that we do not know. Viewing Sao Thiago’s images enable us to recreate that emotion, allowing ourselves a bit of wonder, with the potential to forget what we think we know and to revel in the immediacy of the magic of her work, holding us close, as we unravel.

Influenced by two great Viennese modernists, Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, it’s fascinating to view the concision and extremely intelligent images that São Thiago creates. Each as luxurious, immediate and above all, tender to the next.

Our collection of São Thiago’s work is the largest available and each print is strictly limited to one signed edition in each size. She has five brand new limited edition prints available. Take a look below and click here to go to our online gallery.

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes of Maria Cecilia de São Thiago

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the second of this years series of interviews and the fourteenth of this fascinating series, within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes…”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there are portraits of Mont, seen through the eyes of Maria Cecilia de São Thiago, what a gift!

Yesterday, we added Maria Cecilia de São Thiago’s work to our online gallery. If you have not viewed that yet, we strong encourage you to do so. Please go here.

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group or use this hashtag on Instagram #tawportraitofanartist, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).
