“Vote for your favourite illustrator"

Venezuelan illustrator Ramón Páris garnered most votes from the public during the 2017 Illustrators Exhibition held from April 9th - May 7th last in the splendid setting of Bologna’s Archaeological Museum.

Visitors of all ages were invited to cast their vote in a competition called “VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE ILLUSTRATOR…”, showing their decided preference for the Venezuelan Ramón Páris out of the 75 published and unpublished artists making up the exhibition, coming from 26 countries and a wide range of cultures, styles and expressive sensitivities: from Chile, South Africa, Poland and the USA to Japan, Israel, Italy and Iran.

This was the first time that the vast display of contemporary illustration, selected each year by an authoritative international jury, was put on show at Bologna’s Archaeological Museum before starting the international tour taking it to Japan – where it will remain until the end of the year – and then to Taiwan and China.

Ramón Páris
has been invited to the next Bologna Children’s Book Fair - March 26th – 29th 2018 – where he will meet trade professionals at the show as well as young and older admirers at downtown meetings.
