This poster was designed in the scope of BICM - International Biennial of Mexico Poster, 2015. The Biennial of Mexico invited me to "remember" a personal experience I've had in my career and present an unpublished poster.
The Portrait Yes, it is a portrait. A portrait without a face. A person of my acquaintance asked me to draw his portrait . It was (is) a nice face, correct features, an expressionless look. slender body, extravagant clothes. What a difficult task, I thought, to portray an expressionless face. However, the hair, remarkably balanced and admirably "carved" by an elaborate and striking hairstyle, spoke up in a unique way. The hair was (is) to me, "the face" of that person. When I show him the poster, he was disappointed. Yes, I said, it's you! The poster was not approved and never edited, until now. I understand that a picture is much more than a faithful representation of the character and soul reflected in a face. Beyond that, there is many other signals that may be associated with each human nature, to a certain way of being and appear. Once, Oscar Wilde wrote that a portrait painted with soul is not a portrait of the model but a picture of the artist who paint it. I fully agree.
