Joan Cornellà Solo Exhibition
About Joan Cornellà
Joan Cornellà Vázquez (born 11 January 1981, Barcelona) is a cartoonist and illustrator famous for his unsettling, surreal humor and black humorous comic strips as well as the artwork.
Cornellà’s work has often been described as disturbing or flat-out offensive. Through simplistic visual language, he is able to use satire to comment on the sinister and often bleak side of human nature through a myriad of unconventional scenarios. Everything from our unnatural connection to social media and masturbatory selfie culture to political topics such as abortion, addiction and gender issues - no subject is off-limits. Cornellà’s work revels in its absurdity and impropriety.
