As opposed to the French who pioneered the lithographic process, Cuban poster production in the 1950s and 60s was primarily centered around silk screening. Images were built up through layers of paint rather than ink, resulting in a poster which more closely resembled a painting than a litho. The printing tradition continues with CartelON, a project devoted to promoting silkscreening in Cuba by organizing graphic design contests where creatives of all ages can be inspired to explore screenprinting.
About the Poster: Winning poster of the 3rd Prize of the Contest "All about Pedro... Almodóvar turns 70", convened by CartelON, with the support of AECID and the Embassy of Spain in Cuba / Open Line Project. Poster is numbered, dry-stamped, and hand-signed by the artist. Unlined and in very good condition. Ready to frame.
