About Willie Báez
Practicing his craft for many years has taken this artist to many heights with many groups and solo exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. A self-taught artist, Báez has also accomplished the art of printmaking and continues to explore the many techniques of this medium. Mr. Baez has studied printmaking at the School for Visual Arts in New York and local print shops in Miami. The likes of relief printmaking via linocuts, woodcuts, and gel prints is a deep passion of his, as well as intaglio printmaking. Much of his inspiration is born from mystical, idyllic ideas filled with spirituality and at times, religious themes. As his spiritual journey evolves, so have his works – from figurative portrayals in pastels to landscapes in acrylics and oils; as well as intaglio etchings and mono-prints using various techniques in printmaking.
