Multidisciplinary artist and journalist, La Vanguardia
Director of Infographics for Spanish daily newspaper La Vanguardia since 2007.
In recent years his activity moves on the line between journalism and art through the use of data, as raw material and infographics as his tool. As part of this strategy he combines expositions in art spaces with the steady publication, of those same materials, adapted into editorial formats for mass media, like the spanish daily newspaper ‘La Vanguardia’ or the french weekly newspaper ‘Courrier International’.
On March of 2012, prior to the ceremony of the Malofiej Infographics Awards, the SND-E recognized him as “the most influential infographer of the past twenty years, 1992-2012”.
