Alex Rodrigues has two unique techniques to create his works of art. He gives art tools a miss to create with his bare hands. Using his bare hands, mainly fingers to paint every tiny detail of a painting, he creates what he calls “Finger Paintings” and for his second technique, he not only gives tools a miss but also gives colours a miss, using only his finger nails and paper he creates works of art he calls “Embossed & Engraved”
