Spanish Illustrators: The Color of Optimism

An exhibition on a young generation of Spanish illustrators who represent a global reference for their creativity.

Drawing on a strong tradition, the art of Illustration is currently thriving in Spain. In the early 2000’s, a group of groundbreaking illustrators emerged and began a major international expansion. Originality, professionalism, and diversity of styles are some of the words that define this generation.

Spanish Illustrators: The Color of Optimism will show outstanding works of contemporary illustrators in Spain that are creating new trends. Curated by journalist Mario Suárez, the exhibition features a generation of talented creators who frequently contribute to national and international publications, galleries, museums, and popular brands.

Suárez has selected 28 wonderful artists in great demand internationally such as Paula Bonet, Paco Roca, Gabriel Moreno, Silvia Prada, Carla Fuentes, and Ricardo Cavolo, who are behind Spain’s boom in Illustration, a hybrid and versatile genre well adapted to our current times.

This collective exhibition, that has successfully toured cities like Rome, Frankfurt, and Berlin, confirms the growing interest in both Spanish culture and the art of illustration.
