Yamilys Brito (b. Havana, 1972)
Yamilys Brito studied printmaking at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. She graduated from the school in 1996 and currently teaches there. In her work, Brito often combines a number of printing techniques, both conventional and experimental. Her approach to subject or theme parallels this approach to media techniques. Whether the focus is Havana—a frequent theme in her work—or identity—as in the case of the series depicted above—the distinct, iconic images that comprise each print resonate by virtue of Brito's meticulous selection, combination, and execution. Recent solo exhibitions include: Criticism vs Scapism, Galeria Robert Savedra, San Francisco, 2000; Mirrors and Windows, Galería La Acacia, Havana, 1998; and At the end of the Street, Centro Wifredo Lam, Havana, 1996. Recent group exhibitions include: Cuban Art, Port au Prince, Haiti, 2000; Cuba 2000, Paris, France.
