Ramon Pujolboira (Barcelona, 1949) was educated at the Massana School in Barcelona. During a previous stay in Paris, he attended a variety of workshops and studied at the Ville Higher Institute of Design and Painting while working as a copyist at the Louvre Museum. His work includes engravings and murals and is characterized by a style of drawing at once concise while far removed from any decorative function and he is renowned for his austere use of colour. He has also worked with oil on canvas and Gouache on paper and has illustrated a number of books. His work has been shown throughout Europe.
