Nicolae Negură (1987) is a Romanian illustrator and artist currently based in Lisbon, Portugal. He completed a graphic arts degree and masters at The «George Enescu» National University of Arts from Iaşi, Romania.
His practice as a digital illustrator shifted to mixed media illustration and painting, helping him cover a diverse range of creative areas such as advertising, print, and editorial, urban art, press illustrations or fantasy art, among others.
Nicolae’s work is a combination of strong and garish colors with a rough ink trace that resembles vintage comics. It speaks about people and about the different experiences of humankind, from banal stories of daily life to dreams and feelings.
His art has been featured in international publications and listed in Lürzer's Archive 200 Best Illustrators worldwide from 2016-2017. Nicolae counts two solo exhibitions in Lisbon and many other group exhibition participations in Portugal and Romania.
