Joan Cornellà

(Spanish, born 1981)

Joan Cornellà is a cartoonist and illustrator famous for his unsettling, surrea l humor and black humorous comic strips as well as 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.
