Viladecans Posters

Celebration and permanence

Viladecans is an avid reader, a friend of poets and writers – such as Robert Saladrigas or Jaume Cabré – and he is also a writer. What the poster, book cover and graphic work have in common is the desire to reach the public outside the system of art galleries, exhibitions and museums. Artist books are an opportunity for him to combine his pictorial world with texts by his favourite authors – Salvador Espriu and Miquel Martí i Pol – as well as to collaborate with his poet friend – Josep-Ramon Bach – questioning human life from a biological, anthropological, philosophical and moral perspective. In the illustrated edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s stories, Viladecans tackles the writer’s visions and intuitions in a work of impressive power and graphic variety.
