Barcelona based cartoonist and illustrator Joan Cornellà's first solo show in New York City

Joan Cornellà is a Barcelona based cartoonist and illustrator famous for his works imbued with unsettling, surreal, and black humor. Through simplistic visual language, he satirizes the sinister and often bleak side of humanity through unconventional scenarios. In these times of extreme hypocrisy, the artist sheds some light onto ourselves, unveiling human nature in Cornellà's notoriously disquieting manner.


ABOUT JOAN CORNELLÀ

Joan Cornellà Vázquez, born 1981 in Barcelona, where he lives and works, is an illustrator known for his mostly worldess 6-panel comics of disturbing themes.

From the unnatural human connection to social media and the masturbatory selfie-culture, to the political topics of abortion, addiction, and gender issues - no subject is off limits. Joan Cornellà’s work revels in its absurdity and impropriety.

Thought-provoking, honest, and incredibly entertaining, Cornellà's work is sincere and potent in its message. “I think we all laugh at misery. We must start from the idea that when we laugh, we laugh at someone or something. With empathy or not, there is always some degree of cruelty. In spite of that, I am aware that if one of my cartoons happened in real life I would not laugh at all.” (Joan Cornellà)

In September 2016 Chicago-based alternative band Wilco released its tenth studio album, Schmilco, for which Joan designed the cover.
