The painter Cristina Lama reinterprets film genres in the poster for the SEFF

Wednesday 23 de September 2015

The Seville painterCristina Lama (Seville, 1977)tackles the theme of film for the first time in her career to create the poster that defines the image of the 12th Edition of the Seville European Film Festival. 

For a source of inspiration, the artist has look to film genres which appear in overlapping representations that form a dynamic, vibrant puzzle in which blue, red and white – coincidentally those in the famous trilogy by Krzsztof Kieslowski- are the main colours.

In the execution of this commissioned work, Lama has used china ink on paper to obtain a false engraving, pictorial techniques used in previous experiences and collections, and also the process of superposition and the collage of ideas, but at the same time looking for a different focus in the composition,achieving a result that is full of energy and stimulus, values which characterize the Seville European Film Festival. 

The poster also incorporates an interpretation of the Seville Walls in the lower partof the image as an evocative element of the city.
