Funka Fest is Ecuador's largest music and arts festival, combining international headliners with local artists in the famous Palacio de Cristal in Guayaquil. I was commissioned to execute the official poster and imagery for the past 3 years. This year, the theme was “Memory and Belonging”.
Hundreds of years ago, masks formed the basis of a strong culture of spiritual and artistic self expression for Ecuador’s indigenous tribes. I used the theme of these masks to pay tribute to the societies which predated us in a modern, 3-dimensional manner, highlighting how these cultural influences are still strong undertones to our existing art and music culture in the 21st century.
