Slightly one year after our last post featuring the work of the architect/illustrator André Chiote, the architect got in touch with our blog again to share his new work inspired by the Brazilian architect João Batista Vilanova Artigas.
"June 23rd, 2015, the Brazilian architect João Batista Vilanova Artigas would be 100 years.
To celebrate the occasion my last series of illustrations are on his work, one of the most relevant of the Brazilian (and not only) Modern Movement. Extremely expressive, the work of Vilanova Artigas, despite using a few architectural style elements can, by its intelligence and composition sensibility, be iconic with enormous strength.
Combining the texture of materials (concrete, wood, etc.) and a surgical use of colour, the result of Artigas' work is a set of buildings with great plasticity, becoming an architectural legacy of inspiration."
