Joel Abad

Joel Abad (1980) was born and raised in Manresa (Barcelona). Popeye, Woody Woodpecker and He-man were the reason he grabbed a pencil with more enthusiasm than a milk bottle. Watching his grandfather painting during the summers in Cadaqués lead him to enrol in drawing classes as a child. He studied at Miquel Esparbé’s studio where his artistic weaknesses oscillated between Dalí and the North American underground comic heroes of the 70’s like Robert Crumb and Gilbert Shelton. In 1999 he spent time at IDEP in Barcelona moulding himself as a graphic designer and learned new techniques such as working with acrylics, oils, digital illustration and graffiti – this last one being perfected far from the classroom and unknown of by his loving mother! Upon finishing his studies, Joel directed the design department of an international company dedicated to creating recreational machines. Thus Grafficants, an embryonic project that Joel had nursed since adolescence, was born. An independent company dedicated to the trafficking of innovative graphics – simply Rock n’ Roll visual art.
