The poster “En las Tinieblas Húmedas” was made for the collection “Sangre Devota”, convened by invitation by the International Poster Biennial in Mexico on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the death of the Mexican poet Ramon Lopez Velarde. About the poster Zulema tell us “In Jerez Zacatecas there is the Casa Ramón López Velarde Interactive Museum, a museum dedicated to the poet, the same place that was my ally as a source of inspiration where his muse Fuensanta was manifested with his poetry full of nostalgia, achieved great fame, and became considered “The National Poet”. Reading his poetry that reveals the hidden soul of a man helped me capture deep emotions that reflect his love for poetry; especially the phrase “All of you melt on me like a frost, and the translucent meteor stretched out of time” led me to the visual concept of my poster”.
