The Taller Experimental de Gráfica (Experimental Graphics Studio) was founded in 1962 by mural artist Orlando Suarez with the support of Che Guevara, who was the minister of industry at the time.

 While at the center you will see artworks produced there and have a conversation with the artists about their works and about life as an artist in Havana.

 The studio/workshop is thriving today as the most important graphic arts establishment in Cuba, preserving the old printmaking techniques and producing significant works of graphic art.  The artists/craftsmen use a variety of styles: original etchings, lithographs, woodcuts and collographs are all made at the Taller.

A journey that can change your life...
