Joan Cornellà Makes Asian Premiere in Hong Kong!
We are F****! excited to present the Asian premiere of Joan Cornellà’s solo exhibition!!
Based in Barcelona, Joan Cornellà is a cartoonist and illustrator famous for his unsettling, surreal humor and black humorous comic strips as well as artwork. With a global following, his works consist of mostly wordless 6 panel comics – the disturbing themes, extreme discomfort, often grotesque, all packaged neatly into brightly colored, beautifully rendered comic illustrations. In these times of extreme hypocrisy, Joan Cornellà sheds some light onto ourselves, unveiling who we really are, always in a humorous and disquieting manner.
During the 10-day exhibition audiences in Hong Kong will have the chance to admire and acquire pieces ranging from unique canvases, limited edition illustrations, t-shirts, books….. For many days Joan will be present at the exhibition and will be signing copies of his new book, Zonzo. Fans can also try to crack-open his mind by asking exploratory questions.
The exhibition will take place at Connecting Spaces, a white and luminous 200 sq. meters venue in the heart of North Point. Also, there will be a whole array of activities such as DJ sessions and other surprises to be announced later on. So stay tuned!!
Joan Cornellà 亞洲首次個人作品展!
對, 就是Joan Cornellà!! 我們非常高興邀請到著名西班牙插畫/漫畫家Joan Cornellà 於香港舉行其亞洲首次的個人作品展覽。Joan現居巴塞隆納, 他的漫畫充滿黑色幽默, 風格超現實中帶著神秘詭異。無對白的六格漫畫，以日常男女為主角，關於現代生活中的光怪陸離，其黑暗帶點暴力的風格與明亮活潑的顏色形成強烈對比，引領我們反思生活。
這次展覽為期十天，於北角Connecting Spaces 舉行，香港觀眾可一次過欣賞Joan多幅作品及其最新繪本“Zonzo”。Joan更會親臨展覽與各位見面簽名，緊記把握機會和他近距離接觸!! 我們亦會奉上一系列精彩活動，詳情稍後公布，勿切留意!
