Three artists will represent Ecuador at the 8th Beijing International Art Biennale (BIAB), held in China from August 26 to September 23, 2019.
The sculptural work of Jesús Cobo and the pictorial work of Freddy Coello and Jorge Perugachy will be part of this global meeting of artistic and cultural exchange.
The National Art Museum of China will host the meeting in which about 600 works will be exhibited, which share the idea of “A colorful world and a shared future”, as the thematic axis.
This is the third time that Freddy Coello represents the country in the BIAB. The Quito plastic artist will participate with ‘A new dawn’, a painting worked in oil on canvas, which he describes as “a dance around the seven colors of the rainbow”.
The work highlights the intention of movement in the human figure in a realistic style. As in a kind of dream game, Coello portrays the same character in different positions within the painting.
Jorge Perugachy’s work has toured museums, galleries and cultural centers in the seven exhibitions he has presented in China.
The Otavaleño artist with 49 years of experience goes to his fourth biennial in Beijing with another piece of the ‘Virgins of the Sun’.
In this acrylic on canvas of colorful chromatic converge the current of the baroque with the indigenous worldview, embodied in a group of Andean women, who fly over the fields with musical instruments and dropping “a drizzle of hope”, with the intention of transmitting peace and tranquility.
For Perugachy, the presence of Ecuadorian works and artists in this event “puts the country on the map of culture and arts worldwide.”
The sculptor Jesús Cobo will participate with a presentation and the presentation of a piece entitled ‘4 AM’, which depicts a singing rooster worked in stainless steel and volcanic lava.
In the last seven editions, more than one million visitors have admired the work of around 4,000 artists, from more than 100 countries.
