As opposed to the French who pioneered the lithographic process, Cuban poster production in the 1950s and 60s was primarily centered around silk screening. Images were built up through layers of paint rather than ink, resulting in a poster which more closely resembled a painting than a litho. The printing tradition continues with CartelON, a project devoted to promoting silkscreening in Cuba by organizing graphic design contests where creatives of all ages can be inspired to explore screenprinting.
Miguel Alejandro Castro Sánchez (Monkc) was born in Havana in 1991. He has worked as a typography professor and a graphic design consultant. Monkc's posters are mostly illustrated by hand, and he often uses symbols instead of pure realism. Recently his works were exhibited at the 3rd International Poster Biennial of Lublin (Poland) in 2017.
