Tip of the week

Admired by artists such as Joan Brossa or Antoni Tàpies, Josefa Tolrà i Abril (Cabrils, 1880 – 1959) was a Catalan medium and self-taught artist who used to execute her works in trance. After the death of her two sons, she began to develop a drawing style that fascinated established artists due to its purity and surrealism. Her work was first exhibited at the Sala Gaspar in Barcelona in 1956 and is currently part of collections such as the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid or Fundació Joan Brossa in Barcelona.

Twenty is a very singular number. A double twenty is even more, so in order to wish the best for the upcoming year, we were commissioned by the printing house SYL to develop a special print piece for its regular clients. Most of them are cultural institutions, so we decided to create a visual essay on Twenty.

We did 20 exercises around the figure, exploring different ideas and visual languages, and printed them on paper leftovers. As a result, the final piece becomes a variety of textures and formats bound by a black thread.
