Summer Carnival Poster 2021
The work of Lara Marrero from Puerto de la Cruz, it is an adaptation of the poster from the last winter edition, also by the same author, and dedicated to Mythology and Fantasy. As an anecdote, it is the first poster in the history of the carnaval that includes elements referring to the exchange with Düsseldorf, as represented by the communication tower that is seen in the central rear of the poster, or in the couple of fairies who wear the traditional costume used by the kings of the aforementioned European carnival.
