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.
