joan_negrescolor-portfolio-les-artychautsJoan Negrescolor est né en 1978 à Barcelone. Il est diplômé de l’école Massana où il étudia l’illustration. Puis il s’est formé en suivant plusieurs cours dont « the International Seminar Albarracin Illustration and Design ». Illustrateur professionnel, il continue à se former en suivant un Master spécialisé dans l’illustration de livres pour enfants.

Il s’est intéressé à divers secteurs de l’illustration comme les posters, l’édition ou encore la presse. Il a également fait des illustrations pour la publicité. 

Il aime voyager à travers les expressions et la poésie des images. Son travail est caractérisé par la force des formes, souvent disproportionnées et avec des couleurs chaudes, ce qui donne une touche si personnelle et si singulière à ses illustrations. L’amour et l’attention portées à autrui sont deux thèmes qui lui tiennent à coeur et qu’il s’attache à faire ressortir dans ses illustrations graphiquement séduisantes. Il regrette le temps des médias analogiques.

________________________________________________

Joan Negrescolor was born in 1978 in Barcelona. He studied Illustration at Massana School where he graduated in 2003. He subsequently attended various courses like “the International Seminar Albarracin Illustration and Design” and he established himself as a professional illustrator.

In recent years, his work has focused mainly in the areas of posters, editorial illustration and press. Although he has made some interesting commercial illustration work as well. Nowadays he is attending a specialized Master degree in children’s book illustration.

Joan Negrescolor likes exploring the expression and poetic of images. His work is characterized by strength of shapes, achieving a very personal environment, often through disproportion and the predominance of warm colours. Conceptually rich and graphically attractive, his illustrations reflect the love and care with which he works. In his own words, I considered myself an analogical media’s nostalgic and a digital media’s victim.
