Fado is a Portuguese musical genre, very traditional that assuming the representation of fate as inevitable, poetic and tragic destiny, a history that is told, feels, and sings.
I expressed this idea with some visual elements merged in a recipe rather bizarre.
The Douro river in the background, with typical boats carrying barrels of Porto wine gives a poetic atmosphere, which overlaps a guitar, the singer Amalia Rodrigues and the figure of Karo man with painted face.
We can read lyrics excerpts from fados’Amália in the background, and on the whole set, scrawls symbolizing written musical notes by naive way.

Painting, mixed media on canvas with UV print.
Done on gallery wrapped canvas, with no need for framing, as the edges are painted, ready to hang.

I sign my paintings on the back, but I can sign them also on the front, at request. This painting includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
