At 20 years old, Pedro Matos is giving new life to the term 'street art'. Hailing from Portugal, Pedro grew up in the graffiti clad, skateboarding scene and is a self taught artist. What's truly remarkable and fresh is his undeniable photo realistic illustrative skills.
I love how his "grungy" backgrounds acts as a contrast to the very detailed, refined faces of real people. The backgrounds seem to fit in perfectly with each subjects persona and even add a sense of emotion to each.
