COLLECTION / 1945-1989 / Spain / José Farriol, «Pepichek»

José Farriol Vidal (Barcelona 1955), known in the comic world by the pseudonym Pepichek, was one of the protagonists and promoters of underground comics in Spain in the 1970s and 1980s. He was a member of the group El Rrollo Enmascarado together with his brother Miquel and creators like Nazario, Montesol and Mariscal. He published his comics and drawings in publications such as El Rrollo Enmascarado (1973), Diploma D`honor (1974), Catalina (1974), Pauperrimux (1974), Purita (1975), Star (1975) and Nasti de Plasti (1976), a period in which he and his brother coauthored some works under the name Farry Brothers. Later, he also published his drawings in magazines such as El Víbora and Graficolorandia.

From the end of the 1980s onwards, he began to participate in collective painting exhibitions and, at the beginning of the new century, he joined design team at Mariscal’s workshop.

At present, José Farriol devotes his time to designing gardens and green spaces.
