Sérgio Condeço (1968) was born in Portugal and lived part of his childhood in Nampula, Mozambique. In Oporto, he attended a Textile Design course at CITEX, having been a textile designer for the first fifteen years of his professional life. In 2015, he decided to focus exclusively to Illustration and opened his own studio in Lisbon, working as a freelancer. In 2016 and for three years, he worked as artistic director of the Partis Program, under the theme “Art for Inclusion” with the support of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and through a partnership of the Portuguese Council for Refugees. He frequently collaborates in group and solo exhibitions. He has been invited to participate in initiatives related to illustration, namely: UIVO – Mostra de Ilustração da Maia, Festival Onomatopeia de Valongo, Braga em Risco and Livremente, an initiative of Junta de Freguesia da Misericórdia de Lisboa. In 2017, Sérgio Condeço became an illustrator for Notícias Magazine – Diário de Notícias/Jornal de Notícias. His illustrations have been published in magazines such as Time Out, Epicur, Gerador and Manifesto. In 2019, he was invited by Penguin Random House to illustrate his first two children’s books. In 2020, other publications by Livraria Lello, Livros Horizonte, Alfarroba, D. Quixote and UPA would follow. He expects to have nine books published by 2022. Sérgio Condeço is now part of the artistic collective at the Centro de Artes de Carnide, in Lisbon.
