Learn the artisanal process for creating traditional posters inspired by music
The chicha poster is one of the best known manifestations of Peruvian folk art, characterized by the use of fluorescent colored letters, materialized in posters that are stamped throughout the city to announce Andean cumbia concerts. A process that forgets computers to give value to 100% manual work.
Elliot Tupac is a serigraphist and lettering artist referent in the chicha poster scene, in which he has specialized since 2004. From Elliot's hand you will learn the singular art behind the chicha poster and its vibrant colors.
What's included in this course?
You will start by reviewing the history of the chicha poster, showing the influences of Elliot Tupac and his keys in the world of composition.
Then, a brief summary will be made of the materials to be used, the different techniques within the serigraphy and the correct process to develop it. You will review the elements of the composition, with special emphasis on the use of the fluorine ink so typical of the chicha poster.
Once you have studied the basic aspects, you will begin to prepare the design to be developed, drawing on paper and then proceed to cut it out.
In the final stage, you will proceed to choose the color palette to use for the poster. Elliot will teach you how to prepare your frame, select colors and print them on paper in several phases until you finish your cartel chicha.
What is this course project?
You will design a chicha poster with the name of your favorite band.
Who is it aimed at?
To designers, illustrators, lyricists and anyone with an interest in screen printing.

As for materials, you will need a squeegee, a frame (if you do not have it, Elliot will teach you how to make one), sheets of paper 80 grammage and size 50 cm x 70 cm, ink for paper, pencils, erasers and a cutter.
