It’s hard to describe or classify the work of Barcelona artist Coqué Azcona–and therein lies its charm. Coqué creates elegant, cartoonish compositions that consist primarily of swooshing lines and hand-drawn lettering, punctuated by some brilliant color contrasts. Each figure quickly dissolves as we are drawn into the bilingual collage of words and phrases it contains, and re-emerges as we assemble the scattered illustrative signposts–an eye, a moustache, a pair of squiggly legs. And then we try to decipher the meaning of it all. This is work that is both visually and conceptually alluring.
