Poster of the Peru International Art Festival ICAA 2018

 

From September 20 to 23, a transcendental event for the cultural development of the city was held in Trujillo: the 22nd Edition of the World Art Festival that is organized for the first time in Peru. Last year took place in South Korea under the theme “Peace and Love” and this year is performed here with the theme “The Voice of God.” Two international organizations carry it out: The International Creative Artists Association (ICAA), founded in 1996,  and the World Culture Artists Association(WCAA).

 

 

There were 63 plastic artists from 29 countries from America, Europe, Africa and Asia:  artists from Syria, Lebanon, Oman, South Korea, People’s China and Taiwan,  Reunion(one of the overseas departments of France) , Egypt,  Austria, Italy, Poland, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Romania,  Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Peru, among others.

This event was take place both in Trujillo and Salpo, Otuzco. In both was held an exhibition at the House of Identity but at the same time a Conclave of Artists in which they discuss the themes of their works in relation to the Voice of God. On the 22nd, the artists traveled to Salpo and Cotra where they  make a mural in a “pirca” or stone wall. The images  pretend to express the intensity of the Voice of God. They  leave a manifesto that will point out concepts about the creative freedom of the artist in relation to beauty as a guide. The essential objective is to demonstrate that art unites human beings despite all cultural, religious and political differences. It is a meeting of global friendship, an exchange of the cultural identity of the countries of the world and a reaffirmation of the faith in human values. Subsequently, the exhibition will be held in Lima from the 24th to the 28th of this month.
