International Carnival in Los Cristianos 2020

Los Cristianos Carnival Poster 2020


11/3/2020 Los Cristianos Carnival Suspended


The God of a Thousand Faces

"The essence of this poster is based on merging tradition with the avant-garde. Orienting our view towards the Far East, we find dreamlike characters that transport us to a lost past, in which traditions took shape in a thousand ways, with a thousand faces. Those same, we have retaken to give form to our, also, traditional Carnival." says the blurb.

Japan (the theme of this year's carnival in Los Cristianos) and Arona, then merge, in that dance of masks, with a thousand forms and messages, materializing in the 21st century in the streets and parties, where each one chooses the appropriate costume.
