Poster of the 13th Asia Festival
The poster of the 13th Asia Festival was created by Marc Pallàs, who won the poster contest among 116 other posters and will be the image of this year’s Asia Festival. The jury especially valued its originality, the representation of cultural diversity of the Asian continent, as well as the festive spirit its illustration creates.
