Vasco Mourão

An ex-architect turned into an illustrator with a tendency for obsessive drawings. Only with a black pen and time, he draws cities, buildings, structures and other architectural meanderings.
Inhabiting a place between fine art and illustration, he works in editorial commissions as well creating exclusive artworks and large scale murals for private clients and institutions.
Drawing mostly from memory and his knowledge as an architect, he deconstructs the elements of the city and re-arranges them on a variety of mediums, creating a hyper-depiction of the urban landscape and its textures.
Obsessed with the drawing of cities and architectural forms, his practice has been establishing itself through line drawing, usually with recourse to a black pen, by way of which he creates dense, intricate compositions blending both real and imaginary structures and spaces.
Besides creating commissions for clients such as Apple, Established & Sons or SEAT and working in the field of editorial illustration—having been featured in leading publications such as The Washington Post, The New Yorker, and Wired, among others—he has also been showcasing his work in exhibitions and painting large-scale murals in Portugal, Spain, USA and Japan.
