Radu Vero (October 20, 1926 - February 21, 2007) was a Romanian-American illustrator, writer, consultant, and educator. Born in Bucharest, Romania, Vero received a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the Bucharest Institute of Architecture in 1951. He worked as a freelance illustrator in Bucharest from 1952 until 1961, when he emigrated from Romania to Israel. Then he worked as a freelance illustrator in Israel until 1973, when he immigrated to the United States. Again, Vero found work as a freelance illustrator after arriving in New York and then became a member of the faculty at the Fashion Institute of Technology in 1982. Vero became a naturalized U.S. citizen on January 21, 1987. At the height of his career, Vero was considered to be one of the top five medical and scientific conceptual illustrators in the U.S. He was also credited with discovering a new set of curves, called cubals, in analytic geometry. Vero is probably best remembered as the author of the seminal work Airbrush: The Complete Studio Handbook.
