Ivan Forcadell | April 2021
"A pear's life" is a fun and carefree story that refers to that traditional and rural world always present in the work of Iván Forcadell. The coloring book’s illustrations are the starting point for the six original drawings that you will find in the catalog. In these, Forcadell reinterprets his visual language from humor and irony, highlighting its simplicity and its pure and naive forms. Through this story, the artist is experiencing a new way of interacting with the viewer. He invites us to intervene in his pages, to color his sketches, and he opens the doors to a parallel universe in which innocent and surrealist beings come to life perkily.
The collaboration of Iván Forcadell x La Pera Projects consists of an artist's edition book of 25 copies, signed and numbered by hand. You can check out a PDF version of the coloring book at the bottom of this page.
