Iconic Architectural Buildings illustrated28. Feb2013
André Chiote lives in Oporto, Portugal. He is an architect, but also he is illustrator. His work as an illustrator ranges from architecture illustrations to portraits. His architectural graphic works represent worldwide iconic buildings reduced to their essentials. Surfaces and lines that defines the buildings are rendered in flat colors - which reminde a bit of the advertising posters from the 40's - outlining the emblematic and distinctive characteristics of various buildings. Be it the entire building or just a portion of it, the resulting compositions are very expressive and powerful, just as the real buildings are.
