A constant exploration of graphic language through travel and research is the basis of Joan Tarragó's tireless work.The Barcelona-based artist travels to far away places and absorbs all the goodness he can find. Tarragó seeks out the indigenous arts and crafts, contemplates nature and interacts with locals. Exploring is a huge part of his work, being inspired by textiles, colours, movement, scents, languages and cultures. He believes illustration is no longer bound by the flat format, but very often inspects and develops space. Tarragó's academic and professional artistic background embraces illustration, graphic design and urban art, which gives it a very eclectic and meticulous approach to contemporary art. His artistic style is nourished by ancient symbolism, surf label influences and a very cutting edge graphic language, which all together has been very successful in the artistic scene in many countries including the UK, USA, Indonesia, Thailand, Japan, France and Germany.
