Nuno DaCosta is a brilliant London based (and self taught) Contemporary Fashion and Beauty Illustrator we love.
He has been developing his contemporary and stylish work from a very early age when his love of all things fashion and art was already apparent.
In 2006 he was discovered by top international editorial fashion hair stylist and Beauty Director Neil Moodie who asked him to collaborate on an innovative eight page spread for Wonderland Magazine along with world renowned make up artist Lisa Butler, a seminal event which has shaped and coloured Nuno’s approach and technique to this day.
And back in 2010 he achieved his longstanding dream of being published in British Vogue in their Christmas special ’Superstar Issue’ which has lead to collaborations with The Telegraph, Christian Dior, Vogue Portugal, The Sunday Times, L’Oreal Professionnel and Clinique amongst many other well known and respected names in the Fashion, Beauty and publishing industries.
His illustrations are hand drawn and painted with water colours and Gouache and then scanned, and made print ready in Photoshop.
