Joan (pronounced Jo-Anne) Ornella Vazquez is an artist, illustrator, and cartoonist from Spain. He is most famous for his black humor comics that take on a political, social and international undertone. His artwork ranges from ideas and thoughts about death, police brutality and also child abuse (just to name a few.)

Since Joan’s growth on social media, he has started to branch out into more traditional avenues.

Just recently, Joan had a solo showcase of his art in a London exhibit.

It was at the exhibition center at Hoxton Arches where more than 10,000 people have visited to take a glance at Joan’s work.

Some of the pieces can get a little ‘dark’ to say the least but snickers and laughter can still be heard throughout the gallery. And as such, some social media platforms have banned or censored his work.

In an interview with Unilad, Joan said: ‘social networks often censor my work, especially Facebook, which takes special care of penises and woman’s nipples. It is something like what religious institutions do, so we could say that Mark Zuckerberg pretends to be something like the cyber pope.’

He goes on to say that his sporadic portrayals of violence in his art are not a depiction of himself, rather it is of the world.
