While everyone is crazily sharing the grotesque comics of Joan Cornellà on social media, this celebrated cartoonist is coming all the way from Barcelona to Hong Kong to make his debut with a solo exhibition in June.
Joan Cornellà’s works consist of mostly wordless six panel comics in the bright and happy colours. Ironically, the characters are usually wearing empty smiles and doing something sarcastically humorous that surprises you. Inverting reality, the black humours comic strips actually presents the real life controversies of the society that reminds us to reflect who we really are and what we should care. The style of his work is surreal, yet touches every single part of our life.
Installed at white and luminous 200 sq. meters venue in the heart of North Point, the exhibition will last for 10days at Connecting Spaces in which we can have the great opportunity to admire and acquire the pieces produced by Joan Cornellà, such as unique canvases, limited edition illustrations, t-shirts, books, etc. Joan Cornellà will also be present at the exhibition venue to sign the copies of his new publish, Zonzo. This would also be a great chance to interact with such a creative mind closely and directly!
