Limited edition Cuban screen-print that was designed in 2019 for an edgy poster art exhibition in Havana on Cuban slang. The main image on this poster shows a Cuban language tree, complete with a giant tongue so the tree can speak -- in Cuban (not Spanish)! Like all Latin American countries, Cuba has its share of slang words and expressions that are largely unique to that nation. The handmade graphic in this listing was the main poster for the spring 2019. LA GRAFICA HABLANDO EN CUBANO / DALE LENGUA (The Graphic Spoken in Cuban / Give It Tongue). The numbered, limited edition poster (only 100 copies were screen-printed) lists the venue for the exhibition in the historic Habana Vieja neighborhood and the names of the artists who participated--a who's who in the world of Cuban graphic design. Language is a living system that carries history and evolution. It could be said that it's the DNA of a nation, Yenela Miranda, the co-curator of the exhibition, explained. The intention of the project was to make a sample of some of the most popular Cubanisms today. The word YUMA, for example, refers to a foreigner.

TU MALETIN literally means "your briefcase" but in Cuban slang it means It's your problem. The 19 3/4 b y 27 1/2. Poster was designed by one of the stars of the new generation of Cuban graphic designers. ANDY PANEQUE , who is also a tattoo artist.

PANEQUE today lives in Spain but maintains a strong connection to the graphic art community in Havana. Overall condition of this poster is good. As with most Cuban screen-prints, small imperfections can be expected because these graphics are handmade. But this poster is in really good condition! Approximately 19 3/4 x 27.5 inches; 50 x 70 cm. LIMITED EDITION: Yes, only 100 copies were made. For more than 60 years, the. Cuban Film Institute has been designing silk-screened posters for most every movie shown on the island, whether the films originated in Cuba, the United States, Brazil, Japan or Italy. In the midst of the Cold War 1960s and 1970s, many of the subtitled foreign films shown in Cuba came from the island nation's communist allies in the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Vietnam and even North Korea. Unlike in the United States, where movie posters are often dominated by images of Hollywood stars, the Cubans assign a graphic artist to design an original piece of artwork for each film. These posters are widely recognized in graphic design circles. As stylish works of art, handmade one color at a time and often under difficult circumstances at various times, paint and even paper have been in short supply on the island. Cuba's silk-screen movie posters are nothing less than museum pieces. Examples of Cuban poster art can be found in the permanent collections of museums across the globe from the Victoria & Albert in London to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as well as in prestigious institutions such as the Library of Congress in Washington D. And the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles.

Adding to their collectability, Cuba's movie posters are produced in relatively small numbers. Typically, a few hundred copies are made for each film, although the runs have been as low as 50.

Responding to demand from collectors, the Cuban Film Institute has re-screened some of its more popular posters. That's why some posters created in the 1960s and 1970s began reappearing on the Caribbean island in the 1990s and 2000s. Further adding to their collectability, many of Cuba's vintage posters are imperiled. To us, these survivors are rare beauties, even those with obvious flaws. We are proud to have rescued hundreds of posters from almost certain extinction by storing them in an air conditioned, acid-free environment. We consider both to be collectible, and (in response to a question we often get) all of these posters were legally imported because the U. Government exempts artwork from its economic embargo against Cuba. While the pricier originals are favored by some collectors, the re-screens are also collectible because they were made in the same Havana workshop as the originals. Note that we never sell unauthorized reproductions that have been cranked out in print shops in the U. This item is in the category "Art\Art Prints".
