akakorleone-village-underground-lisboa-1

This impressive work was created by Portuguese illustrator and graphic designer Pedro Campiche (akaCorleone) for Village Underground Lisboa in collaboration with Underdogs.
Painted from bottom to top the newly inaugurated space looks amazing combining akaCorleone’s love for illustration, bright colours and typography.
Campiche explains his work as follows:

Oh no, is he another designer with a graffiti influence? that´s right, painting walls and running from dogs also gave me the addiction to typography, color, painting, drawing all day, planning things in advance, and mostly it gave me a chance to express myself without boundaries, something i try to apply to may daily life and work.
In this epic struggle to become a full-time illustrator i´m always divided between my love for vectors and my absolute passion for markers, ink, watercolours, moleskines doodling and screen printing, so i try to incorporate both digital and handmade elements in my work! – akaCorleone
