Q: Your artwork is extremely realistic and detailed. Simply wonderful! When and how did you discover this talent of yours?
A: Since I was a kid I liked drawing but it was not until the age of 17 when I really started painting.
Maurizio “Maurizio”

Q: What kind of materials do you use?
A: I always use pastel. It is a technique that is between drawing and painting. Unfortunately not valued as it should be, but offers endless possibilities.

Q: Do you work with models or out of your imagination?
A: For my artwork I take photographs of other people and then draw them. Normally I paint homeless, destitute. It’s very difficult for them to accept to be painted as they are in real life in my studio. Sometimes they only allow me to take one photo.

Q: Does it take talent or just a lot of practice to become this good?
A: I think the practice is everything. Or at least 90%.

Q: You’re a true professional in your art field. Please share some of your secrets with the people just starting up with this.
A: Do not be discouraged when something does not go right the first time. Another tip is: Do your work thinking about yourself, not thinking about whether others will like it or not.

    Wow! Impressive. Such details in these paintings. Rubén Belloso humbly answers to one of your question that practice is everything or at least 90% but I think that it definitively is talent. that expresses itself in practice. Very cool, I admire both the paintings and the painter. :-)

    Beautiful, though I don’t know why they call them paintings. They are pastel drawings.

  10. MCR says:

    They’re more realistic than reality!…oh, wait, what?

    Hyper realism, ultra realism—twaddle.

    The paintings are nice though.

  11. catherine says:

    I love these! The hyper realism is offset by the chosen medium, pastel, and the result is quite intriguing. thanks for sharing!!

  12. José Carrilho says:

    I’ve just discovered his work while reading an art magazine here in Lisbon.
    It’s not common to paint pastel portraits this size and on wood panels.
    I suppose that he must apply a primer.

    The portraits are really great, especially for someone this young.

    these are such cool portraits and the best thing about them is that they are in such a high resolution. I appreciate the effort of the artist and also of the person who has put these up in this post!

  15. RichardMcBeef says:

    really nice technique and style – but who would want something like that staring at them all day? the street/homeless person is cliche..

  18. Oladele Joel says:

    Raw and to be sincere, Belloso had tried to capture reality the way it is. This is more than reality, the artist has tried to mirror the soul of his models in such a way that it calls for the attention of the viewers. Infact, there is life in the undulating creases of the folds of the clothes, this is awe- inspiring!

    Ruben, how do you start your drawing, do you use a grid system (quadriculado), use a projector, or draw freehand from a photo?
    Gracias!
