BELKIS AYÓN

Belkis Ayón

Belkis Ayón (b. 1967, d. 1999 Cuba) graduated from the ISA, where she studied printmaking, later becoming a professor of graphics there. Her prints employed a collage-like printing technique known as collography, and explored the Abakuá Secret Society, an all-male organization of African origin. Ayón was interested in relating the myths and rituals of the Abakuá to larger themes and issues of gender and race. Her work has been shown internationally and is in collections throughout the world.
