Joan Tarragó

Joan Tarragó is a Barcelona based Illustrator. He's career started in 2004 when he moved to Athens for a school internship. Since this time he became modern nomad of everyday life, always on the move between Barcelona and Berlin, Paris and Biarritz. He is in an interdisciplinary journey between illustration and graphic design, two-and three-dimensionality. Joan believes illustration is no longer bound by the flat format, but very often inspects and develops space. With his projects he tries to build bridges between art and design, where illustration, painting, street & communication all play an important role, illustrating his fantastic animal's world and characters, holy scenarios filled with symbolism and curious lines and textures. A ritual atmosphere ready to melt with typography and endless traces of organic lines growing fanciful. 

He currently lives in Barcelona and keeps spreading his world through his studio taking part in festivals, preparing new exhibitions and collaborating with brands and non corporate organisations.
