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. 

Designed by Pedro Lazaro Medina, this poster advertises Colombia's 33rd National French singing competition (33 Concurso de la canción francófona), where people are encouraged to choose a French song with the aim of perfecting their interpretation of it!

Poster is numbered, dry-stamped, and hand-signed by the artist. Unlined and in excellent condition!
