José Francisco Borges (Brazil), 1996
Woodcut print on paper (19 1/2" x 11 1/4" image on 26" x 19" sheet)

Jose Francisco Borges, 2005 from the New York Tmes

Artist and poet José Francisco Borges was born in 1935 in the village of Bezerros, Pernambuco state, in Northeastern Brazil. Today Borges is Brazil's best-known folk artist working in the wood-cut medium, and his work has been exhibited all over the world. But he comes out of a long tradition of folk poet/artists who publish their own work in the form of small (generally about 6" by 9") cheap chap-books or pamphlets written in verse, known as folhetos.
