Souto is a native of Venezuela who has been pursuing his artistic studies in the United States. He is a recent graduate of the Master of Fine Arts program at Ohio State University. Although quite young, Souto has already been exhibited nationally and internationally. He has a passion for the work of the old masters and his work pays homage to them while still expressing the contemporary experience. Many of his prints are pure mezzotint while others combine various media to create the final image. In addition to printmaking, Souto creates paintings and hand-made books.
