Zachrisson’s etchings, drypoints, lithographs and woodcuts tell stories, mock tradition and criticize society. His fantastic world is peopled by an entourage of monsters, witches and grotesque figures drawn from Panamanian urban folklore, Spanish literature, classical mythology and personal experiences.
Zachrisson’s work has been widely exhibited, both in
North and South America, Europe and the Middle East and is
part of the permanent collections of many museums, including
the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Metropolitan Museum
in New York, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.,
the Museum of Contemporary Art in Madrid and the Museum of
Contemporary Art, Skopje, Yugoslavia. In 1996 he was awarded
the prestigious Goya-Aragón Prize in Spain.
