I am Costa Alipio, Portuguese by birth, and living in Scotland and Portugal .

After a quarter of a century experiencing the world working on cruise ships, I decided to anchor in Glasgow, Scotland, and put all my time and love into my art.

It took my many years to find my own style, which I like to call -Neo -'Naive- Expressionism'. My early years were spent drawing caricatures, landscapes, portraits, cartoons, sketches... everything - I just loved to paint. I would say around 1998 was when I became aware of my own style.
I have a dream , is organizing an art group in Glasgow call the( Glasgow lost artists)
Which it could help to have our voice on world of art as well.

I have always loved art ,classic music and read a lot ,special history of art, i schooled at Antonio Arroyos when I was younger. Despite not finishing, I have fond memories of the time and learnt from a wonderful painter Dorita Castelo Branco. More recently a course at the Rennie Mackintosh School of Art with Deborah Holland, which gave me more formal experience.

I take influences from a wide range of artists and experiences gained travelling the globe. I enjoy painting a variety of subjects, and prefer to study many styles.

I am particularly fond of modern art and I have great admiration for Picasso, along with Egon Scheile, Veemer, Peter Howson, Francis Bacon and a great friend from New Zealand Patterson Parker: www.pattersonparkin.com).

I am fortunate to come from a creative and artistic family. My half Portuguese and Spanish grandfather on my mother's side was a renowned and famous classical & flamenco guitarist in Portugal. My father used to sing the traditional Portuguese music 'Fado', and my son in an amateur actor. My brother is also a musician as classic guitar , and my niece has a degree in arts. Quite a mix of talents.

A quirk of my work is that I like to sketch with my left hand and paint with my right, often starting my art left handed and finished with the right. People often find this a quirk but it is something that I enjoy and feel comfortable with..
.
My motto - to be alive, live and let live
