Barcelona based illustrator Joan Cornellà admits that he’s had an unusual imagination since his early childhood. Labeled as the “king of absurd”, though colorful and playful on the outside, his artwork intentionally oversteps boundaries on topics of race, gender, drugs, and every social taboo imaginable. His images are populated by funny and always happy figures that live in a twisted world of happiness, he says, and they have no time to be politically correct.
