tradigital series

Tradigital series: tradigital fine art prints of the traditional pencil on paper drawings worked digitally, created by visual artist P Gurgel-Segrillo.

Tradigital art prints created by visual artist P Gurgel-Segrillo original traditional pencil on paper drawings worked digitally.

The Tradigital art series #1 was influenced by the great Photojournalism masters and their humanity and by the Film Noir directors with their gloomy grays and blacks and whites, emphasizing the shadowy and dark side of the human experience.

And it was inspired by Cordel Literature: the popular and inexpensively printed booklets containing short stories, poems and songs, which are produced and sold by street vendors mainly in the Northeast of Brazil. They came from the papel volante tradition of Portugal and are usually produced in black and white and illustrated with woodcuts. The cordeis talk about popular day-to-day life's trials and tribulations.
