Gonçalo Viana


Gonçalo Viana was born in Lisbon, a retro European town famed for its bright light custard tarts.

Studied architecture and moved to London, where he worked at a practise for a few years. Illustration had always been his first love though, and back to Lisbon he left architecture and soon started as a freelnce illustrator. Geometry did find a way to seep back in, providing a framework for his concepts, strong colors and textures.

Gonçalo likes nothing more than to translate complex ideas into simple and engaging images.

He has over 10 years experience in editorial and advertising illustration. He also loves to illustrate children’s books.
