A few weeks ago was the successful opening of the Ecuador Poster Bienal® 2018 in Quito, Ecuador.
The exhibition consisted of over 800 posters from various topics such as Commercial, Social, Political and much more; also the Ecuador Poster Bienal® decided to showcase the work of such poster masters as Erich Brechbühl (Switzerland), Slobodan Štetić (Serbia), David Jiménez (Ecuador) and Speak Up Poster (Mexico) of which all of these posters were displayed in famous Casa de la Cultura Ecuatoriana Benjamín Carrión – Sala Jaoquin Pinto. Finally a special exhibition called Chinese Culture (China) was organised in collaboration with Sha Feng and the Chinese Embassy in Ecuador to embrace the impact of the Chinese poster on the world. Back in 2017 China was nominated as the invited country of honour due to their contribution throughout the 2016 edition.
“I am very pleased that China is the invited country of the Ecuador Poster Bienal® 2018. Today, Chinese poster design has entered a new era, and many Chinese poster works have been recognized by the world’s major poster exhibitions, Such as Ecuador Poster Bienal®. China’s poster design language has become more diversified as various poster exhibitions are held and exchanged. This book will reflect the current standards and status quo of Chinese poster design, which is both affirmation and motivation. I also hope that there will be more excellent posters and more cultural exchanges between China and Ecuador in the future.”
