For various reasons, I ceased producing prints in Medellín and began collaborating with different workshops in New York (Harlan & Weaver) and Madrid (Benveniste). For over fifteen years, I have gathered every Friday with a group of individuals who share a passion for drawing, and we create portraits among ourselves.
Some of these individuals (most of them are much younger than me) insisted me to teach them the etching technique. I thought a lot about it, and finally, we decided to do an introductory etching course in an alternative workshop called 'La Salida'. We met there for the first time on Sunday 21 October 2018. The course continued for five more Sundays, and ultimately, by mutual agreement, we decided to continue meeting on the last Sunday of each month.
That's how this group of 'Grabados de Domingo' came into being, and I named my new group of engravings made in Medellín, after several years of hiatus.
