José Miguel Carvalho Cardoso

Passionate about good food and good wines, also obsessed with drawing. Born in the city of Porto, in Ordem do Terço. Resident in São João da Madeira, Portugal.

He has always studied visual arts and design, holding a Design Graduation by University of Aveiro, a MFA in Design by University of Barcelona, a MFA in Drawing and Printing Technics by University of Porto, and he’s currently a PhD Candidate in Design, at the Aveiro University.

Assistant Professor in the Product Design Graduation at the School of Architecture, University of Minho between 2013 and 2016. Designer with own cabinet in conjunction with Nuno Oliveira, between 2009 and 2011. Worked as Industrial and Communication Designer at Chatron between 2007 and 2009, with which continues to collaborate regularly.

Creates and designs maps regularly, which are “taylor made” to the body of places, combining the drawing of vistas with the cartographic code. He’s often takes part in drawing exhibitions.

His observational drawings usually capture the quotidian places, moments and landscapes, using ballpoint Bic pen, with a fascination to express the correct line at the first trace. The work is lonely, slow and obsessive.
