Jorge Goytizolo Lazo - Artist
Drawing and learning from life
I am a Peruvian artist currently residing in Yorkshire, UK. My childhood fascination with the realism in the works of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo has remained with me throughout my artistic journey.
Drawing people has always been a source of inspiration for me, as it allows me to delve into the complex question of what defines our individuality. Through my art, I strive to capture not only the physical likeness of my subjects but also their unique personalities, creating a moment frozen in time that will last beyond our lifetimes.
My ultimate goal is to create artwork that resonates with viewers on both a visual and emotional level. As Claude Monet once stated, "We all look at the same things, yet see different things." It is my hope that my drawings will offer viewers a new perspective on the world around them and a deeper understanding of the human experience.
