NUNO DA COSTA
Official Illustrator to Vogue Portugal.
Nuno's work has it's own very individual style.
His drawings follow beautifully strong lines with an artist's eye for colour and texture.
Whether it's his stylishly simple black line work or his more detailed colour work Nuno's illustration art holds the viewers attention through his works sensitivity, grace and pure beauty.
In 2006, Nuno was approached by top international hair stylist and beauty director Neil Moodie to collaborate on an innovative eight-page spread for Wonderland magazine, along with world-renowned make up artist Lisa Butler. That time spent together in the studio became a seminal event, which has shaped and coloured Nuno's approach to this day.
Nuno's approach is built on three main tenets - solid drawing skills, an in-depth knowledge of fashion and an ever-evolving exploration of traditional art materials such as gouache, watercolours, inks and pastels, an approach which helps keep his work interesting and versatile whilst always retaining its clarity and unique identity.
Nuno has been commissioned internationally across the worlds of editorial and top brands in fashion and beauty for clients such Chanel, Dior, Maison Thierry Mugler (Brand Illustrator), Portuguese Vogue (Official Illustrator), British Vogue, Harpers Bazaar Germany, Wonderland, TUSH, Swarovski and Caryn Franklin MBE amongst many others.
