Biography

An artist of collage and mixed media as well as a filmmaker and writer, J. Tormento has a major background in the animation and film industry. A cabinet of underground icons, counter-culture, pop and folklore blended into images that clash, his most personal pieces of art play in a muddy frontier where the canvas works as a meeting point for the unexpected and the fantastic.

J. Tormento is also the author of the queer fantasy novel ¨Ravenclaws¨. Spanish version is now available for purchase on selected stores and Amazon:
