Living and working in Havana, Cuba with a studio on the grounds of the prestigious ISA (Instituto Superior de Arte), Osmeivy Ortega is an artist surrounded by strong cultural and physical ties to the natural world. Ortega first graduated from the ISA and is now a professor there, fostering a renewed interest in progressive printmaking techniques. Already a sensation in Cuba, Ortega has had solo exhibitions of his work in Washington DC and the Cleveland Institute of Art as well as numerous group exhibitions within the United States as well as Mexico and Spain. His work is dominated by his connection to animals and the natural world, each “portrait” speaking to a metaphysical sense of shared emotion between animals and humans.
