Analida Burgos

Former Panama Canal Zone, Panamá, 1949

Biography Details

Graphic artist, printmaker and poster artist. She obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Puerto Rico in 1971 and continued studies at Escuela de Artes Plásticas of the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, where she specializes in Graphic Arts. During the 1980’s Burgos was the only woman to collaborate as a poster artist at Taller de Gráfica from Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña. She is also noted for been one of the founding members in 1981 of Hermandad de Artistas Gráficos de Puerto Rico. In 1976, she obtained Second Prize in Printmaking from United Federal Savings in San Juan. She participated in several exhibitions of Puerto Rican prints, among these, Estampa serigráfica en Puerto Rico in 1987 at the Museum of the University of Puerto Rico and 45 Años de expresión gráfica puertorriqueña in 1992, at the Puerto Rico Pavilion at Expo ’92 in Seville, Spain. Her work is characterized by the meticulousness of spaces and surfaces, the expressive nature of her letters, in addition to the use of textures with thin linear strokes.

Artist Statement

"This approach, which requires details and textures of fine linear strokes, is persistent in Burgos poster works. Instances where the design is simplified by dividing the image into large areas of color are few. She does not proceed as a printmaker would, instead she approaches the image trough outcomes derived from other techniques. This method can also be considered as an approach which could be described as feminine, more intimate, that takes into account aspects, surfaces and dimensions that women's eyes see differently than men’s. Analida Burgos sees other things, and opts for a difficult path in poster making which is usually defined by the meticulousness of the spaces and surfaces."
