Joan Cornella is a Catalan artist most famous for his set colors and his characters disturbing stillness which mimic 1950’s advertisements. Cornella uses the morbid atmosphere and creepy happy faces to mock society and human obsessions. And no topic is off limit which means he often offends people. But it hasn’t stopped major magazines such as La cultura del Duodeno, El Periódico, or The New York Times from featuring his artworks.
