    With this Tower of Babel from 1975, the observers find themselves before the most visionary Joan Ponç and at the same time the most balanced. He keeps alive his symbolic and encrypted world, preserving the atmospheric oneiric, extreme colors, and material brushstrokes. He introduces the degradation of colors in the backgrounds and sharpens the geometry of the forms without losing his origin as a cartoonist between the fantastic and the religious, with a certain black humor that brings him closer to the world of comics. Ponç makes his larger format works, which are executed with the same meticulousness and attention to detail.
