Carles Fontserè was a Catalan artist and the creator of one of the most internationally famous icons of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). A poster designer, painter, scenery designer, photographer and all around artist, Fontserè was a controversial figure of Spanish political exile who often expressed himself through political incorrectness. He had his opinions on the forces of the Nazi occupation in Paris, the churches that were set aflame by Spanish anarchists, the collaborationist regime of Vichy and the attack on the German city of Dresden, among so many other events. Exploring his biography is delving into an exciting story and discovering a gifted artist, faithful to the ideals of freedom. He speaks to us directly, through camera, breaking all schemata and helping us to understand much of the history of the 20th century.
