OSMEIVY ORTEGA


Osmeivy Ortega, graduated in 2003 from the Academy of Fine Arts San Alejandro where he teaches. He received an honorable mention from the Tamarind Institute at the University of New Mexico in 2004 and a Special Mention at the 10th La Joven Estampa Award in 2009. He decided to remain faithful the traditional printmaking techniques and use these techniques to convey its principles and ideas. We can see in his woodcuts influences from Durer and Michelangelo´s anatomical studies. His screen printing job is achieved with mastery and sensitivity, and his design of a flawless accuracy. In his works, the political messages reach us through the representation of animals with elements of human nature.

"(...) En la obra de Osmeivy Ortega es posiblemente donde más se advierta la laboriosidad y dedicación por lograr el más preciso refinamiento de la técnica. Como si de un proceso de expiación se tratara Osmeivy traza con finos hilos una minuciosa y exquisita constelación caribeña. Toda su obra esta marcada por un matiz polémico, por un discurso de y desde la insularidad, pero con una actitud universal. Para él, nada es más trascendente y vital que nuestra historia local."       Cristina Figueroa Vives
