Under the carnival umbrella in La Orotava
La Orotava has unveiled its poster announcing Carnival 2019, under the title ‘After the rain, Carnival flourishes’.
The winning work is the creation of two young members of the Murga Los Virgueritos: Aaron Delgado and Giovanni González. The Mixed Commission of the Carnival chose this work from the nine submitted.
The poster, as detailed by the authors themselves, is inspired by the theme of the carnival for this year: Carnival under a rain of colour. The work takes the colour of the flowers that germinate after the rain, and giving more importance to this theme since La Orotava is traditionally linked to flowers, and also highlight their gardens and the intense colour of them.
The figure that is seen in the foreground represents all those anonymous people who contribute to make these parties great, shown with their umbrella, since, despite being a rainy date, supporters still put on their best costumes and get out onto the streets.
