There is a thriving art community in Cuba, which I love because I always try and bring back small, original works from local artists when I travel.
So I was thrilled to visit El Taller Experimental de Gráfica ("Experimental Graphic Studio"), a cooperative graphic print shop in Old Havana.
It was established in 1962 by by mural artist Orlando Suarez with the support of then Minister of Industry, Che Guevara.
There is a group of artists working and studying there that preserve old print making techniques; you can see some of the presses in these photos:
From the Global Studies: Cuba blog:
Grabado (printmaking) is a very important traditional art form. The handmade quality and aesthetic value along with the fresh smell of ink and the high quality paper (things that are rare in Cuba) make Grabado very sought after.
Here is one of the artists performing his craft:
I bought two small etchings here and was able to meet one of the artists; sadly, I can't recall or make out his name on the art itself, but I think I have it in my notes/receipts somewhere and will update if I can find it.
