Adopted son of J. Borges, J. Miguel learned the art of printmaking from his stepfather. Today he and his stepbrother Manasses create xilogravuras (woodcuts) based on the life and celebrations of the Northeast and sell their prints through regional fairs and through galleries in major cities of Brazil. J. Miguel’s prints range from images of saints to depictions of the hardship of the droughts in the backlands to depictions of popular folk heroes.
