Oriol Jolonchis a self-taught artist born in Barcelona with a natural gift for creating invented realities. With imagination as your main weapon and the aid of photography and digital media, Oriol their work takes us through the magical and surreal worlds
I was born on February 23, 1973 in Barcelona and although I have realized studies of design and photography, I consider myself to be one self-taught of vocation. My interest to give expression to invented realities comes from young, when I inherited an old airbrush from muy father and I used it to do muy firsts “works”, small pictures to illustrate front pages of old cassettes and some poster that I keep with very much love in some corner of house and especially in my memory.
I always kept a direct contact with the photography, but when the digital age began, this was what seduced me definitively, and it took me inevitably to the passion for creating other worlds, others realities that seem invented but somehow or other trues.
They are basically works fruit of imagination, some of them pondered and studied in detail and with a long travel behind; others are like small flashes of clarity that I have some times and after, I try to give expression to fixed images, without any plan more that people stop a few instant in front of the image and observes it with a little more attention, and if they want, they can do some questions themselves or imagine the story that could be behind every scene interpreting the reality and inducing the spectator to confuse reality and fiction.
