THE TEAM - Jordi Bou

Senior graphic journalist specialising in international news and politicsFollowing a classical Fine Art Degree at the University of Catalonia, Jordi discovered Graphic News when selling his paintings to fund a trip to England to learn English. The artists at Graphic News were wowed by his beautiful still life oil paintings (reminiscent of Velasquez) and he was fascinated by their computer artwork, never having used a computer as part of his University Degree. Offered a “free Mac” on Fridays, he taught himself to use Illustrator and at the same time caught the “news bug”. He has never looked back.

In 2005, he spent a year travelling around the world, spending three months in China.
