Ibrahim Miranda is from Pinar del Rio, and currently lives and works in Havana. He is one of Cuba's most important visual artists and printmakers, who began showing his work in Cuba, Mexico, Spain, and the US shortly after graduating from the Instituto Superior de Arte. He has since gained international recognition for his work based on maps, particularly maps of Cuba, emphasizing qualities of water and isolation, suggesting a state of metamorphosis and change. Ibrahim’s work can be found in numerous private and public collections, including the Fine Arts Museum in Havana, the Museum of Mosern Art in New York (MoMA), and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (MFA), amongst others. Miranda was the invited artist in the Boston Printmakers Biennial in October 2013. He refers to the piece, Dumbo and the Candies, A Misunderstanding, as “a dream that was never made”. Ibrahim believes that it has been difficult to produce the piece due its perceived social, political, and cultural message. The edition will be printed in the fall of 2015 at Brand X Editions in New York, and published by Latin Art Space.
