JOAN CORNELLÀ

VISUAL ARTS. Born in 1981, Joan Cornellà lives in Barcelona. He is a cartoonist and illustrator, famous for his unsettling, and surreally disturbing comic strips and artwork. His illustrations are brightly colored yet darkly humorous, relying more strongly on visual clues and gags as opposed to textual elements to indicate a simple narrative.

After graduating in fine arts he has collaborated with numerous publications, such as La cultura del Duodeno, El Periódico, Ara and The New York Times. In 2009 he won the third edition of the Josep Coll Prize with his album Abulio, published in the next year by Glénat. Since 2010 he provides cartoons for the Spanish magazine El Jueves. In 2012, Fracasa Major, a selection of Cornellà’s black-and-white cartoons made from 2010 to 2012, was published. Most of the material was previously unpublished, although it also contains material published in El Jueves and various other fanzines. In 2013, his third album, Mox Nox, was published via Bang Ediciones.
