Painting Exhibition of Artist Napoleon Paredes

The Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum is pleased to invite you at the inauguration of the Painting Exhibition of Artist Napoleon Paredes

Napoleón Paredes (Quito, 1947)

The motley of his compositions is at certain moment, one of the most visible features of the work of Mr. Paredes, with a refined sense of composition and color. That mottling includes both architectural lines as well as zoomorphic and anthropomorphic figures, all treated with a technique that reveals a trade very developed, based on wise combinations of pigments. The Theme also results in still lives and figures and human groups that would seem inflated like stuffed dolls, whose connotation is the opinion of the spectador.

Alvaro Noboa’s Speech in the Painting Expo PORT At The Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum


PABLO MARTINEZ: In the name of the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum, we give you the most cordial welcome. As you know, the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum created the “Álvaro Noboa” Biennale of Guayaquil.

The exhibition we have at the moment includes 33 artists, of which three were winners of the three Biennales that we have held here. Jimmy Lara, first Biennale; Juan Caguana, second Biennale; and René Bohórquez, the third Biennale. Besides that, there are José Luis Choez, Loor and Saidel Brito, second place winner of the second Biennale, as well as many other famous artists.

Álvaro Noboa always thanks me for being Director of the Museum, and for organizing these exhibitions. This time I have to thank him, however, because if it wasn’t for his unconditional support, the sponsorship that he gives to the art and culture of Ecuador, we would not have this exhibition.

Here with you, Álvaro Noboa.
