Description

This color collagraph, which has a three dimensional surface, is of an undersea world, with an elaborately decorated, armored fish and other sea life. The large fish appears to be in a state of hypnosis as it drifts into dangerous waters. The artist attached various printing elements to the plate to create the detailed, intricate composition, which was printed a la poupée.

Cuban printmaker José Armando Medina Sanabia, who often goes by José A. Medina, was born in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba, on June 21, 1977. He attended the Academia Profesional de Artes Plásticas, José Jaoquin Tejada where he received a degree in Advanced Studies in Visual Arts, emphasis on printmaking and drawing, 1996. He would later became Head of the Printmakers Board (2000 - 2008), and in 2003 he obtained his Bachelors in Education of Visual Arts from the Frank País Garcia University of Pedagogical Sciences, Santiago de Cuba.

His specialty is 'collagraph,' a print technique that he learned from the first Print Masters that introduced it in Cuba. He was a practicing visual artist and a printmaking professor at Luis Diaz Oduardo Cultural Workshop and the Fine Arts Academy in Santiago de Cuba for 12 years.
