Ana Juan

14 11 2014

A wonderful illustrator and artist. Some of my favourite work is the illustrations done in children’s books. Ana Juan is one of the most accomplished.

Born in Valencia in 1961, she holds a degree in Fine Art from the Politécnica University of Valencia. She produced her early work in early 80s Madrid, at the height of the movida madrileña countercultural movement, collaborating with emblematic magazines in the era such as La Luna and Madriz (with the renowned illustrator Felipe Hernández Cava). She published the only graphic stories she has produced to date in these magazines. Afterwards, she collaborated with prestigious publications and magazines such as The New Yorker (designed over 16 covers), El País and Los Angeles Times. In turn, she has experimented in the world of illustration for children’s books, without abandoning her unique ‘fantasy and naive’ style. She is also a painter, sculptor and writer.

pigeon is her name. Thats all I know. And she creates wonderful little paintings. They have a certain charm about them that is difficult to pin down. The colours are bright and exorbitant (is that a description of art?) She engages the world as a young girl. Bright and naive.
