Quino’s Biography

Joaquín Salvador Lavado was born in the Argentine province of Mendoza on July 17, 1932. He was called Quino from a young age to distinguish him from his uncle, the illustrator Joaquín, who was the one who woke up his vocation as a draftsman at a very early age. In 1945 after the death of his mother, he began studying at the School of Fine Arts of Mendoza. His father died shortly after, when Quino was 17 years old. He left school, with the intention of becoming comic book author and soon sold his first work. He tried to find work in different Buenos Aires publishing houses, but he did not succeed. After doing compulsory military service, in 1954 he settled in Buenos Aires.

He published his first humor page in the weekly Esto Es, since then he began to publish in many other media: Leoplán, TV Guía, Vea y Lea, Ladies and Damitas, You, Panorama, Adam, Atlántida, Che, the newspaper Democracia, among others.

In 1954 he began to publish regularly in Rico Tipo and then in Aunt Vicenta and Dr. Merengue. Shortly after he began to make advertising drawings. He published his first compilation book, Mundo Quino, in 1963, after which he was commissioned a few pages for a covert advertising campaign for the Mansfield appliance company, for which he created the character of Mafalda. The campaign was never carried out, so the first story of Mafalda was published in Leoplan, after what happened to be published regularly in the weekly newspaper Primera Plana since the editor of the weekly was a friend of Quino. Between 1965 and 1967 it was published in the newspaper El Mundo; soon published the first compilation book and began to be published in other countries, including Italy, Spain (where censorship forced to label it as for adults), and Portugal.

After leaving the strip of Mafalda on June 25, 1973, according to himself for running out of ideas, Quino moved to Milan, where he continued to make pages of humor.

In 2008, with the curatorship of Mercedes Casanegra and as part of the New Murals Program, the company Subterráneos de Buenos Aires commissioned a tile mural with the characters of Mafalda in the corridor that connects the stations of Perú and Catedral.

In 2009 he participated with an original of Mafalda made for The World in Bicentennial: 200 years of Graphic Humor, a show organized by the Museum of Drawing and Illustration at the Eduardo Sívori Museum in Buenos Aires.

On May 21, 2014, he won the Prince of Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities, an award given to him on October 25.
