Vasco Mourão works on the perception, texture and memory of the urban landscape. Only with a pen and time, his practice obsessively focus on the representation of cities through drawings on paper, wood, stone and metal.
Drawings of cityscapes and other architectural meanderings at large, rearranged on the canvas.

Inhabiting a place between fine art and illustration, Vasco Mourão creates bespoke artworks and large scale murals for various private clients, galleries and institutions, working also on selected editorial commissions.
Originally from Portugal, now based in Barcelona (when not on the yearly work & travel walkabout).
