The local newspaper, El Universo, shared a small photo gallery about the event.


Ladies and Gentlemen
Good night

What a huge thrill I feel to be standing here in front of you, contemplating hundreds of beautiful artworks with messages from `The Bible’.

to also know that we are on the 4th edition of the International Biennial of Guayaquil, `Alvaro Noboa Ponton’. It is a very important achievemetn for the art, culture and education of our country.

It is also an excellent introduction letter to all countries in the world that here in Ecuador, we want to live in peace and harmony, cultivating and teaching our artists, our poets, our musicians and all who create positive things for the community and society.

As I stated earlier, there is no more support and contribution to our country than promoting art, culture and education. Because without art there is no history, no culture, no peace, and without education there is no civilization.

That is why I want to thank the jury of this Biennial and the artists from Germany, Italy, Russia, Poland, Spain, Portugal, Azerbaijan, USA, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Peru, Bolivia and our country Ecuador for its participation, as well as my collaborators from the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum.

I would like to present you the winners of the Biennial, these are:

The first prize for the work `In Charge Timothy 3:16-17′ by Cuban painter William Hernandez Silva.

The second prize for the work `Feminine Hermeneutics` by Ecuadorian painter Marco Barahona.


They are in alphabetical order:

1. Bolivar Bravo with his`Revelation’, from Ecuador.
2. Paoly Correia Dos Santos with her `Ferramentum Patentia’, from Portugal.
3. Lara Jimmy with his `Climbing for a possible salvation’, from Ecuador.
4. José Ulloa Rojas with his `I’ll be free when my mother dies’, from Bolivia.
5. Michelle Ulloa with her `Untitled’, from Ecuador.


The five mentions are:

1. Antezana Fernando Andrade with his `Resurrection’, from Bolivia.

2. Oksman Larissa with her `Magdalena’, from Azerbiaján.

3. Velasquez Francisco with his `The Spiritual’, from Spain.

4. Villamar Manuel with his ‘Matthew 19-14′, from Ecuador.

Thank you very much.
