Osmievy Ortega Pacheco was born in Havana Cuba in 1980 and has been widely recognized is a growing force of Contemporary printmaking. His works are influenced by the old masters like Durer and Michaelangelo, creating works that celebrate and study the human anatomy. His works are identified by his rich textures and detail, implementing hints of social issues, creating a visual effect of an outsider looking in. He graduated in 2003 from the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts in Havana and has received multiple awards, like Honorable Mention from the Tamarind Institute of the University of New Mexico in 2004. He has exhibited throughout Cuba and in other nations like Sweden, UK, the US, and Panama, among others, with major exhibitions including the 11th Havana Biennale.
