Zest teams up with Urban Sketchers Portugal once again.
This time we bring Portugal, from North to South and Islands, as you've never seen!
This is an album that gathers more than 80 artists, with different techniques and styles, that portray Portugal in a more human and intimate way.
The drawings are made on location, and therefore we have a truly unique access to the landscapes, churches and monuments, typical foods, beaches, cities and mountains. The richness of one of the most beautiful and varied countries, which is lived and recorded by the Urban Sketchers, condensed into this extensive album with a practical format that can be taken on the road or displayed in your living room!
Come with us on this special trip through Portugal and let yourself be dazzled by the images captured by artisc eyes, from the best known and visited monuments, to the most hidden surprises and hidden places.
The Urban Sketchers have opened their daily graphics, now it's time to embrace this very personal and artistic journey, it's time to get inspired and visit Portugal by Urban Sketchers!
