What is Fear Artists

Joan Galo

Born in Barcelona, Joan showed an interest in cinema, theatre and dance from an early age. They have studied audiovisual communication, and around that time, they bought their first camera and started taking pictures of everything around them. They’ve made some short films that helped them learn about the language of cinema and then began working in advertisement in 2016. Their interest in queer studies grew, and Joan became a creative figure within the city’s queer underground scene, taking portraits of the people around them. In 2019, they shot their most personal project in which they venture into their own experience as a non-binary person.
