Eduardo Recife

Eduardo Recife brings a sophisticated sensibility to his designs, drawings, photos, and typefaces. ‘He crafts his art mostly by hand and employs the computer to enhance the personal touch and not to obscure it. Evidence of decay in his work reflects his recognition of the decadence of the life around him, notably urban and at times distinctly Brazilian. His work is almost tactile and sensory, and his inky flourishes and odd juxtapositions persuade us to share his almost childlike wonder, a wonder he values for lifting our eyes from the sidewalks of our daily grinds. He produces his artworks for himself, for magazines and art journals, and while he sells a few of his typefaces, many are available free’. Explore with a curious mind. Till next time
