Bologna Illustrators Exhibition 2016

Bologna Illustrators Exhibition this year was rich in art techniques, narratives and cultures. While the majority of selected work was from Europe and East Asia, there were several illustrators from Middle East and South America, including the Fundación SM International Award winner, Juan Palomino from Mexico.

I tried to select photos with more than one illustration from the same artist to show the stories that were taking place between the pieces and also within the intricate details in each of them. This is true for both fiction and non-fiction illustrations, which were equally fascinating and full of narrative. If you would like to see more photos, please see the links at the end of this post. Thanks!

My sister Margarita visited the fair together with me and took many more photos of the Illustrators Exhibition for her blog. They can be found in this post.
