Oswaldo Terreros Herrera [53916]

Born in 1983 in Guayaquil, Ecuador, where he lives and works. He studied Art at the Instituto Superior Tecnológico de Artes del Ecuador (ITAE), Guayaquil. He is the founder of the Movimiento GRSB (Gráfica Revolucionaria para Simpatizantes Burgueses), or the Revolutionary Graphics for Bourgeois Sympathisers Movement, a project that seeks to question the symbolic repertoire of local and regional political militancy by creating intersections between art and graphic design. The movement has staged exhibitions, events, concerts and campaigns in various arts spaces, employing imagery reminiscent of that of political rallies. He was awarded the Mariano Aguilera Prize at the 13th Cuenca Biennial, Ecuador, in 2016. His work is featured in Latin American Graphic Design, Taschen, 2008.
Oswaldo Terreros Herrera draws on strategies from the spheres of both art and communications, such as appropriation and assimilation of the discourses and aesthetics of political movements. Their aim is to generate critical content and gestures, as well as ironical comment, in which humour plays an interrogative role.
