Master Prints

“Master Prints”, es una serie de grabados (Xilografías y Linóleos) en los cuales emplea el proceso de apropiación, variación e intervención de “Obras Maestras”, usando en algunos casos sus títulos y estrategias de composición para insertarles imágenes e iconos contemporáneos dentro de su contenido original que muchas veces transgrede o contradice su significado original.
El interés del artista es reflejar algunas problemáticas como la contaminación ambiental, la explotación desmedida de los recursos naturales, el irrespeto de los derechos humanos, la violencia, el incumplimiento de los derechos laborales, el consumismo y los abusos de poder.

La exposición del artista galardonado con “El Premio Nacional de la Estampa 2012” (del Instituto Nicaragüense de Cultura) se podrá apreciar en un horario de Lunes a Viernes, de 8:00 am a 4:30 pm y los fines de semana, de 9:30 am a las 5:00 pm.
La entrada a la Galería Nacional es gratis para el público en general.
