“Mangroves (on Blue)”

Artist Xavier Cortada’s career has often centered around imagery associated with a ubiquitous Florida icon, that of the mangrove. These artist prints exemplify this relationship, presenting a variety of Cortada’s more notable mangrove artworks through limited-edition series. With strong composition and vibrant color choices, these works were intended to establish a conceptual resonance between the audience and nature, in hopes of promoting a more in-depth understanding and relationship towards our environment. 

All prints from Cortada’s “Mangrove” series are in the collection of the Florida International University Steven and Dorothea Green Library
