André Rios Art

My name is André and I'm a portuguese pastel artist based in the Netherlands.

Throughout my art career I developed the interest for the realist aesthetic and currently I create original pastel drawings from wildlife and still-life to portraiture.

My love for pastels also led me to teach my pastel techniques in workshops all over the Netherlands and I also teach pastel courses & lessons. In my classes I'm committed to make upcoming artists to discover their own passion for the pastel medium and provide them with the tools to express their own vision and discover the true purpose or Art.
