Seville, September 15, 2020 - The Seville European Film Festival has unveiled its 17th edition poster, inspired by a legendary European film classic, Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire. Its author, Julepe, artistic alias of Julio Serrano (Seville, 1972), has found in the angels a good source of encouragement and hope in a time marked by the pandemic. The sevillian festival will be held form Novembre 6 to 14 in a face to face edition.
Born in Seville in 1972, Julio Serrano, known in artistic circles as Julepe, grew up influenced by the pop culture that arrived after the dictatorship. Self-taught, he managed to achieve what he defines as "a certain skill in drawing and watercolor techniques'', that would take him to the Faculty of Fine Arts in Seville, from where he left with a degree, heading straight to the fun side of art. As a professional, he played many roles: he started in the field of advertising, he has starred in several exhibitions with his works, and, strongly motivated by rock&roll and cinema, he has published fanzines, drawn comics, illustrated role-playing games, video games and... tattoos.
