Years of Spanish Art
Buena Tinta screen-print workshop
has a history which spans the last 25 years, and the work they have done with
more than 200 artists in this time quite nicely sums up what has happened in Spanish
art in the last quarter of the 20th century.

Magic of Cuenca
Painter, sculptor, photographer and screen printer,
Javier Cebrián, and his "compañera," Concha Lledó
founded their workshop in the magical and art-pregnant town of Cuenca in 1976.
By a felicitous coincidence their neighbor in that town of cliffhanging houses
and one of Spain's most important contemporary art museums was the Spanish painter,
José Guerrero, and Guerrero was quick to offer them space in his house
for their workshop. He became their first important artist client and went on
to promote their work among his artist friends like Gerardo Rueda and Luis Gordillo.

In 1992 Javier and Concha took advantage of the opportunity
to move their workshop down by the edge of the Mediterranean, in Altea, Alicante,
where they have worked ever since. There they print and edit traditional screen
print work for Spanish and international artists. Due to their custom of sharing
the editions with their artists, they have accumulated over the years one of Spain's
most important collections of contemporary screen prints. It is this collection
which they now offer directly to collectors and dealers worldwide. We are pleased
to show a brief preview of it on this page. For more images and information go
