This is a list of Nadir Afonso artworks: paintings, engravings, and architecture.

Nadir Afonso in his studio, standing next to Seville (first decade of 21st century [2007], Cities series), canvas still unmounted.

All data was sourced from websites (linked to) and from the books and catalogues listed in the main Nadir Afonso article.

Paintings[edit]

Titles are shown in their original language as conceived by the artist, and translated if needed, except the titles made of place names, which are shown in the English form. Multiple-source inconsistencies are shown in the Notes column. The artist's method usually involves one or more studies before the final artwork, which sometimes is revealed only years later; the artist also sometimes returns to work on artworks after they are publicly exhibited. This explains some of the multiple or alternative dates.
