Born in Guantanamo in 1955, now residing in Havana, printmaker Isolina Limonta has been applauded for her stunningly rich colors and textures, in addition to the underlying deeper social observations within her collography. The bodies of the figures in her work are filled with the intimate elements of their lives — plants, coins, feathers, architecture, lace, or buttons are sumptuously imprinted on their bodies.
Limonta is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts San Alejandro, Havana, Cuba. She also conducted post graduate studies at the Institute of Superior Art, Havana. She is a master printmaker specializing in collography and a member of Cuban Union of Writers and Artists (UNEAC) and The Experimental Printmaking Workshop, Havana.
