LLUIS CADAFALCH BIO
Lluís Cadafalch Pladevall began his career in the graphic arts, studying both graphic design and illustration at the prestigious Escuel Illa in Sabadell as well as the Escuela Massan in Barcelona. Since 1992, Cadafalch has worked as a professional illustrator for a variety of books and press and has won a number of prominent awards for his unique and lively poster designs.
More recently, he has turned his attention to collage and mixed media works and is seen by many as one of the leading emerging artists in the Catalonian region. Working in a range of mediums including cardboard, paint and wood, Cadafalch’s mixed-media collages call to mind the colourful cities of his native soil.
In 2001, Cadafalch established himself as one of the founders of the Centro de Arte “Refugi”, an established artist collective in Barcelona. He has since participated in several important group exhibitions in Catalonia and abroad including the prominent international art fair, Art Chicago in April 2008.
