This fun and popular activity, which attracts a large public enthusiastic about the art of caricature, was celebrated, as in previous years, at the Sao Bento Railway Station, in Oporto, a place frequented by travelers.
With his pencils and brushes, artists from various countries, from the category of Aidan Bremner, Pedro Ribeiro Ferreira, Omar Perez, Luc Descheemaeker (O Sekoer), Vitor Neves, Agim Sulaj, Turcios, Nani Mosquera, Antonio Santos (Santiagu), Paulo Pinto, Pedro Silva, David Vela and Xaquín Marín, delighted the attendees.
The personal caricature is always a challenge, because how to represent the caricatured in an image? How to convert strokes into a psychological portrait of the model? That was the magic enjoyed by all those who dared to be drawn, on an unforgettable afternoon, where they practiced the most universal of languages.
We must thank Luis Humberto Marcos, all his team and the sponsors, for their persistence and energy, in the realization of the PortoCartoon, an event that enhances the value of graphic humor and contributes to human betterment.
