Here is a recent portrait that Santiago Uceda did of Oregon congressman Peter DeFazio. Santiago describes the style as a hybrid of his older style and what he’s doing now. In Santiago’s own words, “The way I draw portraits now is not that different from the way I did them before; the difference would be that DeFazio is not as painterly, it does have texture, but has more of a collage approach, the older pieces feel more like paintings.” Below is the DeFazio portrait, along with a few older pieces for comparison. Whether old or new, we think Santiago’s style of portraiture is super cool!
