AMOR – the different types of love illustrated by Joan Alturo.
Joan Alturo is an editorial illustrator from Barcelona, Spain. In his creative work he captures a concept and then he develops the idea. Everything is expressed through his metaphorical visual language, always with a critical, provocative, and fun touch. Joan Alturo’s series “AMOR” illustrates different types of love in 12 conceptual artworks. The illustrations share a uniform style and color scheme. This is what he says about his work: “Few words, so small, enclose such a big concept. Few words, so tiny, have been used so much for such a constant use, sincere or false, safe or uncertain, perennial or fleeting. Few words with so few letters have filled so many writings, so many books, so many letters. Few hearts have not experienced the warmth of their name, the color of their appearance or the smell of their fragrance. Few have enjoyed it in its fullness. But all of us, however, run blindly behind its elusive shadow, trying to awaken the sleeping echo of a smoking fire.”
