Cuban-born artist, Esterio Segura is a 1994 graduate of the prestigious Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. Working in painting, sculpture and installation, Segura makes use of humorous imagery to address socially and politically charged themes from Cuban history. He has been exhibited extensively in Cuba, US, Germany, Spain, England, Argentina, Brazil and elsewhere in the world.
At Graphicstudio, Segura created Todos Quisieron volar: Hibrido de limo Chrysler New Yorker / Everyone would want to fly, Hybrid of Chrysler New Yorker limousine, combining various printmaking processes including drypoint, direct gravure text, screenprint, woodcut and embossing. The print is visually humorous as it depicts an aerial view of a black Chrysler with silver wings and is accompanied by satirical text. Based on a series of sculptures and installations Segura created, Todos Quisieron volar: Hibrido de limo Chrysler New Yorker addresses Cuba’s isolation with travel and transportation prohibited from and to the island.
“Crowded with fantastic ideas and strong images, Segura’s work resonates with the angst of the Cuban people. Yet it is resolved in such a poetic way that the resilient beauty and creativity of life on the island is made clear.”
