Naul Ojeda


 
 

Born in 1939, the renowned artist Naul Ojeda is a native of Uruguay where he trained at the University of Uruguay, School of Fine Arts. He has lived in France, Chile, Mexico, and since the late 1970s, has been a resident of Washington, DC. The artist is best known for his work in woodblock and linoleum prints, which he pulls by hand in small editions. Naul Ojeda has exhibited widely in the U.S. and internationally. Over the years he has been invited to participate in numerous prestigious print biennials, including the Latin American Biennial of Graphics in Santiago, Chile, The Biennial of Graphic Arts in Cali, Colombia, and the Biennial of Latin American Graphic Art in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In addition, his work has been selected for various traveling exhibitions, among them, a Smithsonian organized exhibit that toured the Bass Museum of Art in Miami, Florida, the Balch Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Lakeview Museum of Art and Sciences in Peoria, Illinois. Ojeda's work is represented in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American Art, and the Art Museum of the Americas in the Organization of American States, as well as the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His prints have been commissioned by Americas Magazine, Curbstone Press, the Institute for Policy Studies, the University of Chicago Press, The Washington Post, and others. The artist has received numerous awards, including fellowships from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Distinguished Immigrant Award 2001 from the American Immigration Law Foundation. Although known primarily as a printmaker, Ojeda has occasionally turned to watercolors and oils to free him from the exacting discipline of the woodblock.
