A little more than five months before the start of the CSIO Barcelona 2019, the oldest international sports competition in Spain, the organization of the competition presented its new official poster in the framework of the Barcelona Polo Challenge Negrita Cup celebration.
After the success of the poster of the previous edition, created by Conrad Roset, this year the CSIO Barcelona has decided to regain the collaboration of an artist for the realization of the competition poster. In this edition it has relied on the internationally recognized architect and painter Julián García Hernández.
In this case, the author has given the prominence of the new poster to the public, giving it the importance it has in the sport of elite competition, not only as an assistant but for the need of its warmth to animate the competition. With the flags he wanted to give the international character that CSIO Barcelona has. And with the beige color of the competition arena he has achieved sobriety and elegance.
Julián's plastic work has arrived to Bulgaria, Russia, France, Germany, Canada, Italy and the United States. In 2011, he was awarded internationally at the Brunel Awards in Washington for his participation in the railway project of the High Speed Basin Station - Fernando Zóbel. In addition, Julián García was commissioned to design the equestrian obstacle of CSIO Barcelona 2014 inspired by Casa Batlló.
The event had the institutional presence of Curro Espinós, RCPB president; Emilio Zegrí, RCPB Foundation, Santiago Mercé, CSIO Barcelona president and Daniel Garcia Giró, director of CSIO Barcelona.
From October 3 to 6, Barcelona will become the world capital of horse riding with the celebration of the 108th International Jumping Competition. For the seventh consecutive year, CSIO Barcelona will host the Longines FEI International Jumping Nations Cup ™ Final, the most important equestrian event on the international equestrian calendar.
