Info/Bio

 

Felipe Almendros was born in Barcelona and raised in Badalona. Today he one of the biggest names in the Spanish comic industry. While earning a degree as an illustrator, he began creating custom portraits and drawings. After traveling to Mexico, where he had his first exhibition, he came back to Barcelona to continue experimenting with drawingpainting and video art. There his first graphic novel SAVE OUR SOULS (Apa Apa) was published, followed by RIP (Penguin Random House) and VIP
(Penguin Random House). His work combines thematic realism with a unique hand-drawn graphic style. He portrays characters and city landscapes from his routine in the urban fringe of Barcelona. As an audiovisual artist, he has collaborated in numerous animation clips, and experimented with video art in different music videos and some authors’ short films. Recently, Almendros has inspired and starred in a film: El arte de frío by Ander Duque based on his graphic novel RIP. (Felipe Almendros BEST ACTOR AWARD CINESPAÑA 2020 TOULUSE)
