Rayma Suprani          

Award-Winning Venezuelan Satirist & Cartoonist

An award-winning satirist, Venezuelan cartoonist Rayma Suprani's life's work is speaking truth to power -- even when being outspoken comes at a steep price.

Suprani is a Caracas-born cartoonist who has published her work in various Venezuelan newspapers, including El Diario Economía Hoy and El Diario de Caracas. She is one of three recipients of a 2019 Václav Havel Prize for Creative Dissent. For 19 years, she drew cartoons for El Universal, but in 2014 she was fired for authoring a cartoon that tied Hugo Chávez's legacy to Venezuela's ailing health care system. Over the years, her life has been threatened numerous times by opponents of her satire.
