Collection of posters by Eduardo Muñoz Bachs
The work of Muñoz Bachs is a must in the history of Cuban graphic art, especially when it comes to cinema because it is someone who printed a very personal style, recognizable, of unquestionable aesthetic values to everything that he did and for which it is appreciated inside and outside our borders.
But Muñoz Bach not only designed posters for film, he also made numerous works for the promotion of political and cultural events, as well as hundreds of illustrations for children’s books published in Cuba and abroad. Although better known, and exemploding, as a designer and illustrator, he also carried out extensive pictorial work in various formats – rarely exhibited- which today is preserved with zeal by family and friends.
With reference to his pictorial work, he was never considered an artist in the conventional sense. On more than one occasion he said he painted to be distracted. However, he produced oil works, in ink and acrylic that, as in its posters, prioritize the figurative with high doses of fantasy and lyricism.
Perhaps the most significant thing about the work of Eduardo Muñoz Bachs is the elaboration of a very personal imaginary inhabited by countless characters.
Muñoz Bachs is undoubtedly one of those must-have beings, for a long time, for the graphics, illustration and visual culture of Cuba and the entire island and continental region.
