Biography Joan-Pere Viladecans

Self-taught painter and engraver.

He has had many solo and group exhibitions in Spain and abroad since 1967.

He exhibited for the first time in 1969 at the Sala Gaspar with a work influenced by Surrealism and Informalism, poetry and music.

He simplified his language in the 1970s. His work is organised according to elementary constructive schemes that integrate symbols, words, letters and numbers.

He intensified his chromatic scale in the 1980s and became interested in the contours of forms. At the same time, he began to be concerned with and condemned the degradation of nature through a flexible, dynamic language.

He currently incorporates elements from the organic world, memory and medicine to address questions of human existence.

He was made Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (1996) of the French Republic and was awarded the Catalan National Culture Prize (2023) from the National Council for Culture and the Arts (CoNCA) and the Cross of Saint George (2023) from the Government of Catalonia.
