The Limitless Complexity Of Vasco Maurao

Spanish illustrator and architect Vasco Maurao creates mind-bogglingly complex structures, site rendered in stark black and white. Utilizing the thinnest and most uniform of lines he constructs sprawling buildings with hundreds of windows, diagnosis eaves, and support beams. So large that they are rendered abstract, it almost seems that Maurao was doodling on a sheet of paper and simply zoned out, shaken out of reverie only to find that he had covered the entire table in those neatly inscribed lines, his subconscious having painstakingly assembled them in his absence.

    Reminds me of a little – more complex of course. Wallpaper for a tiny room, perhaps. Lovely.

    Kind of reminds me of the manga blame! by Tsutomu Nihei, (maybe) set in the future, where a megastructure has covered the earth(maybe). it’s a quiet manga with wonderfull backgrounds and with ever-awesome silicon creatures.!_7_log-38-024-025.jpg

    Looks like a medieval town – watch out for the chamber pots raining down! Also Kowloon Walled City, with less cement. Fun to look at.

    I don’t have to investigate it closely, either, in order to see that the perspective is spot-on. Brilliant.
