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.
Liz Capote Alonso studies at Havana's Higher Institute of Design (ISDi) in the specialty of visual communication design. Her posters have been part of collective exhibitions and have won prizes: 3rd Prize in the contest 30 Anniversary of the EICTV (2016); 1st Award in the poster contest organized by the ICAIC Youth Show, (2017).
