"Hogar" (“Home”) is the exhibition that brings together the projects developed by the 19 students of the EINA's Postgraduate Diploma in Creative Illustration and Communication Techniques from international origins: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, multiple locations in Spain, the United States, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
The exhibition is a reflection on the word "home", which in 2020 with confinement has taken on a new meaning and as the students themselves explain, during this time "illustration and creativity have helped us to free our minds, at a time when our bodies were confined".
As Philip Stanton, coordinator and teacher of the program comments: "At Hogar, the final course exhibition and catalogue created by the students themselves, we are privileged to enter into the creative processes of these 19 young emerging illustrators. They share their work and talent through a wide variety of visual and conceptual styles, at this time of the beginning of their professional careers".
The exhibition includes the participation of: Esther Abad i Balañá, Meritxell Abad Oller, Elena Araujo Esponera, Camila Berazain, Irene Caamaño Orozco, Mia Campos, Paula Castro, Ruiz Ráian Coelho de Andrade, Patricia de Torres Gimeno, Cinta Fosch, Eileen Hinckle, Fabiola Lara, Mayte Lozano, Ingrid Miralpeix Fonalledas, Itxaso Mugica Arce, Matias Neumann Aspee, Leire Orueta Gómez, Bis Turnor.
During the 2019-2020 academic year, students of the Postgraduate Diploma in Creative Illustration and Visual Communication Techniques have participated in and/or won competitions and publications such as: Librújula, Yorokobu, La Maleta de Portbou, the Bellaterra Journal of Teaching and Learning of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the international design competition Imagina Civican, organized by the Fundación Caja Navarra. Specifically, in the Imagina Civican competition, 7 of the 10 finalists were illustration students from EINA (five of them from the postgraduate course) and they won the jury prize and the public prize.
