Lino Azevedo 🖼️
Materials: acrylic, ink, and pen.
In a culture largely structured to value profit over people, in what ways do we personally contribute to the continuation of this model? This painting is an examination of how we dumb ourselves down with the overuse of technology and consumer mindsets, and therefore can fall prey to the profit motive as top priority in our society.
About the Artist
Lino Azevedo was born to Portuguese immigrants near San Francisco, California. Like most small children, Lino enjoyed creating from the soul with simple tools like pencil and crayon. Being a painter herself, his mother saw the potential and let him try his hand with her oils and brushes. These formative years set him up for a lifelong career in the arts. Lino obtained a bachelor’s degree from San Jose State University and his master’s degree from Winthrop University. He has taught art at the university level for the past decade and currently is a Foundations Professor at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. He is an award-winning artist whose work has been exhibited internationally and published in multiple journals and magazines. Find him on Instagram @azevedofineart.
