“Understanding the ambiguities of the human nature.” That’s what captivated Tadeo De La Barra, and introduced him in the world of art. Of course, as the son of one of the greatest Peruvian artists, it could not have been any other way. Being told by his father that the human body presented both the greatest difficulties but at the same time the greatest achievements in art, he pursued figurative art drawing and painting at such a young age as seven years old.
Tadeo was born in Lima, Peru on August 30, 1977. In his continuous search for artistic development, Tadeo enrolled in the prestigious School in Fine Arts at 18; and as the first student in his class he was invited to participate in the Quimera ’99 exhibit in Mexico, where his art is highly regarded as one of the best in South America.
His paintings are a window to an intelligent and creative mind; his strokes are the voice of a true artist. His art transcends hyperrealism exposing the observer to a surreal and delightful experience. Brilliant, gifted, and spontaneous, his artistic achievement elevates the senses and portrays the exuberant and yet down to earth, and humble mastermind behind the canvas. Simple, as any great man should be.
