6th International contest of caricature and graphic humor
"Tribute to Arles Herrera - Calarcá"
Cartoon Theme: And after the pandemic, what?
We present to all of you the convening of the sixth edition of the NOTICARTÚN COLOMBIA contest, which pays tribute to the Colombian cartoonist, artist, and maestro José Arles Herrera, better known as “Calarcá”.
José Arles Herrera "Calarca" was born in Armenia (Quindío), on June 23, 1934. He went to painting school in the 1950s, in the city of Cali, to the workshop of the Popayán’s painter Hernando González and later studied caricature and graphic arts in Moscow, at the Institute of Political Science and Graphic Communication. His time at the academy was not only for learning but also to create training spaces and to share his knowledge. This is how he is the co-founder of the National Cartoon School (in Colombia) and its teacher for 29 years. He has also been a workshop professor at the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University, the Industrial University of Santander, the Ricardo Rendon of Rionegro City Cultural Center, and Univalle University, among others; as well as in different social spaces in the country. Lastly, it is significant to highlight that Calarca´s work has been printed in important media in the world.
