Biography of the artist

Ángel Badía Camps o Àngel Badia i Camps, (Puigreig, Barcelona, 1929 - 2019) draughtsman, illustrator and painter.

In 1950 he joined the Escuela Superior de Bellas Artes of Barcelona and began working primarily for romantic British magazines of the publishing house Fleetway. He has also worked for the Nordic market through the Publishing house Semic and in the United States. These works were obtained through syndication agencies such as Selecciones Ilustradas, which permitted many artist of his generation to work in much more lucrative markets than the Spanish one of the time.

Although he made some cartoons, his works shined mainly in cover illustrations. His mastery is especially remarkable in the drawing of the female figure, slender and elegant, which has influenced later artists. His work has been compared to Jorge Longarón’s, also a draughtsman for Selecciones Ilustradas.

In Spain he worked mainly for the publishers Bruguera and Ricart, focusing on romantic comics such as Lupita, Mariló, Sentimental, Modelo, Dalia, Florita, Merche or Sissi. He also illustrated numerous youth and children's books for the publishers Molino, Afha and Planeta, and even card albums such as Hombres en Lucha.

He held his first exhibition as an artist in 1974, and since then he has been focusing on his work as an artistic painter, field in which he is widely recognized. His style is figurative, with a preference for nudes, the human figure and occasionally still life paintings and landscapes. He uses the oil technique as well as other techniques compatible with drawing. Since 1987 he exhibits regularly at the Sala Parés in Barcelona, and he has had numerous exhibitions both in Spain and in other countries.

1979 gold medal, granted by the publishing house Bastei-Verlag of Germany.
