The Artist Says:

"Oh, I understand! ... And, if the office at Douradores street means to me life, this second floor, where I live, in the same Douradores street, means to me Art. Yes, Art, that lives in the same street of life, but in a different place. Art relieves us from life, without relieving us from living which is so monotonous than the proper life but just in a different place. Yes, this Douradores street brings all the meanings of things, the solution of all mysteries, except for the existence of mysteries in which, in these case, has no solution." Bernardo Soares (F.

It was not an easy task, but in this process,  he gathers up to a state that makes him good: concerned about the lines, the shadows, the harmony between lines and colors, he feels at home. His old home. Over the years, he took part  in exhibitions and held a solo. Currently continues to develop his art, becoming more personal.
Nowadays his works can also be found in sites of fine art like premizez.com/luiz-henrique-azevedo“Even if my lines never become printed,They will have their beauty, if beautiful they are.But they cannot be beautiful and left aside to be printed,Because the roots may be [...]
