Pablo Martínez, director of the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum, at the headquarters of the Third Alvaro Noboa Guayaquil International Biennial of Painting, he emphasized the variety of styles employed in the artistic event as one of its strengths. Among them are: impressionism, expressionism, magical realism and hyperrealism.
The work of Ecuadorian René Bohórquez, winner of the competition’s First Álvaro Noboa Acquisition Prize, falls within the framework of expressionism, noted Martínez, which thereby differentiated this present version of the Biennial, he added, as “in the previous two, those in first place created hyperrealist works.”
