We are very excited about the arrival of a great artist to the ranks of Mushroom. Jalcalara joins our roster in the category of ILLUSTRATION.
Jalcalara or Juan Alcalá Lara was born in Málaga and before moving to Granada to study architecture, he spent the 90´s amongst Wally books, Mattel toys, Beatles´ songs or spending the afternoon drawing.
Upon finishing his university studies, Jalcalara completed his formation as an architect and designer under the sky and light of the city of Valencia, where he currently resides. Which is where he also began to combine his knowledge of architecture with his work as an illustrator.
Jalcalara’s creations are generated in a crossroads of elements, anywhere from architecture, everyday life and popular culture; European comic books from the second half of the 20th century, his vinyl collection or Wes Anderson films.
