Eduardo Recife is an enormously talented illustrator from Brazil, whose client list makes me blush. He can pretty much do it all; he illustrates, creates typefaces, draws, collage.. incredible really. His work has visual layers and textures and brush strokes; he wants you to feel its authenticity. Eduardo was commissioned to illustrate the walls for Urban Golf, in London. Check out his website, here. And his think tank website, here.
“I think old graphics were unbelievably more beautiful than what we have today. It was more poetic, and the colors were more attractive. Throughout my whole life I’ve liked old stuff. When I was younger, I used to get worn clothes and shoes from my older cousins, and I loved it! Even today, I am really fond of vintage (second-hand) t-shirts, etc. Besides all this, I think that the vintage, worn look gives a sensation it was touched by the hands of time or by the artist. Somehow clean lines from the computer bother me, because it feels so cold and mechanical.”
