Adão Conde

Is an illustrator reminiscent of the 17th century engraving and gilding tradition, his style consists of primarily pen and ink drawing, and then silk-printing it on paper. In some works, he first applies a fine gold leaf on specific areas, creating a thin coating of gold underneath the ink.

 

His illustrations are mostly for limited low numbered hand made serigraphies, created for corporate and institutional commissions, and exclusive private orders.

 

Adão Conde has studied Architecture in Lisbon, Portugal, where he creates and lives with his wife and two sons.
