The representative image for #LosCabos8 was mastered by Magdiel López,
a leading Cuban visual artist based in Dallas, Texas, inspired by the Sudcalifornian legends.
A beautiful woman evokes Queen Calafia mythical goddess recognized for her courage and perseverance. Her gaze is framed with the iconic arch of Los Cabos and the legendary lemon pearl, extracted from the pearl deposits of La Paz.
The background tones remind of the dark skies of the starry nights and the spectacular pink sunsets that melt in the seas that bathe the region. Modernity, technology, art, and dynamism are also represented with geometric monochromatic figures within the image.
“Looking at Los Cabos from El Arco is like seeing the most beautiful landscape from the lens of a camera. I am very happy and proud that my first art for a film festival is for the Los Cabos International Film Festival. Inspired by the beauty of Los Cabos and the perpetual impact that movies have on us.” Magdiel López.
All these elements merge into a collage proposal that also involves us to be part of this festival!
