‘Up the Shard’ Screen Print

‘Up The Shard’ is a commissioned screen print I made for RUDE, hand-printing their fantastic A1 illustration of the Shard, in London. This print has a peculiarity I absolutely love: each edition is slightly different, me and RUDE love layering a little quirks that come from screen printing, enjoy! Hand pulled 6 x colour screen […]

Zé Monteiro_Heart screen print


New edition! In how many ways do you show your love? Not even all the experimental textures in this print would be enough to describe mine. Love has experimentation, several forms of expression. Experiment with textures, feelings and sensations. Express your love in different ways, or perhaps all of those ways in one. But do […]

Guess who has been teaching screen print beginner workshops in London… On the 9th of February I was more than happy to introduce the workshop’s participants to the screen printing technique. Driven by how much plastic bags are freely handed out and going to waste at his local market – East Street Market – I […]

Nexu Magazine_Zé Monteiro, Mafalda Cintra and Sara Jorge


The magazine Nexu – latin for connection – has its concept precisely in relating either people or entities with several perceptions on a specific subject. Which, in selected but very different voices, is discussed in each number, having design as its mediator. In this number we present the Grid as the main subject. First with […]

Beer Pong

Ever wondered about the trajectory of a ball about to hit its target? That exact moment you end up visualizing the right shot, whether afterwards you get or not. I won’t lie, me and my mate Job de Beer won that game and it felt good. Why not illustrate it and print it? Size: 16x20cm […]


These two posters are the result of an internship in my teacher’s screen printing studio, PENAZEBRA. Seeing one of our projects at school, he asked me and a friend how would we like to do an internship on his studio during the summer holidays. And so, on we went. It was simple, while we helped […]
