a familiar mascot by Javier Mariscal
As part of a month devoted to the relationship between the art and design of the Netherlands and that of Barcelona, Foment de les Arts i del Disseny (FAD) is hosting an exhibition of Dutch artist Joost Swarte and Valencia-born artist Javier Mariscal. Swarte and Mariscal have dedicated their careers to describing an alternative reality in artworks that are outwardly simple, but open to broad and deep interpretation. The drawings have been divided into the categories of women, architecture, vehicles, secret life, typography and music.
This exhibition is one part of a larger series of events hosted by the 28th Annual Comic Festival of Barcelona (Salón del Cómic de Barcelona). Check their website for more information www.comic-28.ficomic.com
