Ibrahim Miranda is a young Cuban artist who has gained international attention for his prints and paintings. A native of Pinar del Rio, he attended the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana; shortly after graduation he began to exhibit in Cuba, Mexico, Argentina, Spain and the United States. Miranda frequently bases his work on maps of Cuba, emphasizing qualities of water and isolation and suggesting states of metamorphosis and change. The poetry and song of Cuba provide literary and philosophical ideas, deepening the meaning and impact of his prints and paintings. In Lágrimas Negras, his first print made in the United States, Miranda used an antique map of Florida and Cuba, superimposing upon it the figure of a man’s head, who is crying “black tears.” The print combines silkscreen and handcut woodblock.
