Mercè Grifé Canals

WINNER OF THE 39th MINI PRINT INTERNATIONAL OF CADAQUES, 2019

Born in Manresa, Catalonia, in 1954, she moved to Barcelona when she was very young and studied Painting at the Escola Massana. She graduates in 1980 as a Teacher in the Autonomous University of Barcelona, with the speciality of Primary Education and Visual Arts Expression, job that she has practiced for thirty years in the Public School.

Grifé combines this job with a continuous learning in fine arts. It is during some illustration courses that she discovered printmaking. Since that first contact and until now, she hasn’t stop getting trained and experiencing this technique.
