John Nieto

John Nieto, S & me(1)

“I paint native American themes so I can step back in time and shine some light on those people – that culture. Through my artwork, I hope to show their humanity and their dignity.” -Nieto

John Nieto is one of America’s most dynamic contemporary artists, concentrating on themes that transcend mere representation. He utilizes intense primary colors, applied in bold strokes to give dimension and character to the canvas. In all of Nieto’s art, sensitivity and respect for his subject are projected. He concentrates on capturing in his work his unique vision of the subjects he paints on canvases of vibrant, electric hues. The bold imagery of Nieto’s dynamic style is the essence of his art through which he seeks to evoke a reaction or response from the viewer. His art is a synthesis of his philosophy and his technical versatility, a powerful expression of pride and vitality. Nieto is unique among contemporary American artists. His personal philosophies are a vital element of his consummate style. Nieto states, “I employ a subject matter that is familiar and express it the way I see it”.

Howard Terpning

terpningMugA

Terpning was born in Illinois, November 5, 1927. His mother was an interior decorator, and his father worked for the railroad. He grew up in the Midwest living in Iowa, Missouri and Texas as well as Illinois. As a boy he liked to draw and knew by the age of seven that he wanted to be an artist. At age 15, he became fascinated with the West and Native Americans when he spent the summer camping and fishing with a cousin near Duango, Colorado. In 1967 in the midst of his commercial art career Terpning left his home in Connecticut and headed to Vietnam as a civilian combat artist. Invited by the Marine Corps to document the war by living with the Marines for one month. Of the experience Terpning stated he was “profoundly changed” by the experience. Upon his return home he created six paintings which are now at the National Museum of the Marine Corps.
Terpning’s choice of palette is typically restrained in order to ensure that narrative is the first impression imparted upon a viewer. He is among a very small group of painters of the West in the late 20th century whose art will still be hanging in museums and appreciated a hundred years from now.

Pinar del Río, 1949

Creator of multiple shapes, diverse compositions rich in fantastic figures and elements, he uses and appropriates these to reflect the society that surrounds him. His island, as witness to time, has made him into a narrator and interpreter. Complex backgrounds invite this Cuban painter to come and show his colourful mastery and chromatic diversity. His works have become an obligatory reference point in the development of Cuban fine arts, for all art critics and fine arts historians. In recognition of his development as a creator he was awarded the National Prize for Fine Arts in 2006.

“My hands were too soft.. I had to find some special occupation, some kind of work that would not force me to turn away from the sky and the stars, that would allow me to discover the meaning of life.” – Marc Chagall

Born in Russia, Chagall moved to France in 1910. Marc Chagall’s poetic, figurative style made him one of most popular modern artists, while his long life and varied output made him one of the most internationally recognized. While many of his peers pursued ambitious experiments that led often to abstraction, Chagall’s distinction lies in his steady faith in the power of figurative art, one that he maintained despite absorbing ideas from Fauvism and Cubism. Later he spent time in the United States and the Middle East, travels which reaffirmed his self-image as an archetypal “wandering Jew.” Chagall’s Jewish identity was important to him throughout his life, and much of his work can be described as an attempt to reconcile old Jewish traditions with styles of modernist art. However, he also occasionally drew on Christian themes, which appealed to his taste for narrative and allegory.

Juan BOZA Sanchez

Juan-Boza-One-Man-Show

Boza was born in Camaguey, Cuba in 1941. He was a gay Afro Cuban artist specializing in painting, drawing, engraving and graphic design. His prints are fluid and confident. He moved to Havana in 1959 in order to study at San Alejandro. He was expelled from San Alejandro due to “political issues” and became a lithographer in 1965. Boza was fired as a result of the Congress of Education and Culture which convened in 1971 and led to the censorship of many artists in Cuba. In the years between 1971 and his exodus from Cuba in 1980 Boza restored religious statues to earn a living. In 1980 Juan Boza managed to escape Cuba to New York via the Mariel boatlift. Boza described New York as a “tremendous shock” and upon arriving in New York “had to re-build Juan Boza from scratch.” Boza began developing an Afro-Cuban theme that he realized was part of his culture after leaving Cuba. According to Jaun Boza, “There is no distinction between my faith and my aesthetics.”
Juan Boza Sanchez died in NYC in 1991.

Mario Bencomo

Mario Bencomo

Mario Luis Diaz Bencomo was born on July 26, 1953 in Pinar del Rio, Cuba. As a youth he was sent alone by his parents to live in Spain. At the age of 14, he left Madrid for the U.S., arriving by himself in New York City in 1968. He often returns to Europe, and for regular stays in Montreal, Canada also. In 1996 he returned to Cuba for the first time, three decades after he left, and visiting Cuba periodically since then. He works in both Miami and Montreal.
His work represents myth of forms found in the natural world, literature, poetry, art history and personal experience; often blurring the line between the spiritual from the sensual.

Pedro Vizcaino

Pedro Vizcaino (8)

The creative coordinates of Pedro Vizcaíno’s art stem from the late 1980s era. The explosion of the Volumen I exhibition and the subsequent emergence of a “Cuban avant-garde theory” steeped in the contributions of Western postmodern thought—boldly defying official cultural models from the Eastern Bloc—as well as the rise of a new model of art education around the workshops of the Instituto Superior de Arte, brought about a gradual but permanent change (not without its own contradictions) in the paradigms of Cuban art. All of these directly influenced the artist’s métier. “Doomed” to discover international art in the glossy pages of art magazines and old slides from History of Art courses, Vizcaíno transmuted his inability to travel and lack of first-hand access to key artworks into a critical, ironic distance from the traditions of art. Vizcaíno used characters borrowed from American and Cuban comics, imbibed (from books) New York graffiti of the 1970s that had been praised by Norman Mailer, and chose as authoritative sources such contemporary figures as Kenny Scharf, Keith Haring, and Jonathan Borofsky, as well as German Neo-Expressionism and Pop artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Ray Johnson. He distilled these sources through his peculiar Neo-Expressionistic temperament and his urgent need to express the convulsed dynamics of a reality both internal and external. —Abelardo G. Mena Chicuri

Luis Joaquin Rodriguez Ricardo

Luis Joaquin Rodriguez Ricardo

Luis was born in 1966 and grew up in the village of Mella, about an hour outside of Cuba’s second city, Santiago de Cuba. His father, whose paintings also form part of this exhibit, started El Grupo Bayate, a collective of self-taught artists living in Mella, in 1994. Many of the artists have become well-known in the world of folk art, especially Luis, who continues to sign his paintings “El Estudiante” in deference to his father, whom he considers his teacher, “El Maestro.” Today, Luis Jr. is the only member of the collective who lives outside of Mella. When he married Luisa Maria Ramirez, an art critic and El Grupo Bayate’s chronicler and promoter, he moved into her family home in Santiago, where they live with Luisa’s parents, Mercedes and Ignacio, and their four-year-old son, Luisito.
Luis has exhibited widely, and in 1997 he and Luisa came to the United States for two shows of El Grupo Bayate’s work, one at the Southside Gallery in Oxford, Mississippi, the other at an exhibit sponsored by the Center for Cuban Studies at the Metropolitan Arts Center. Luis’ work was featured in a June 2002 article by Annette Grant in The New York Times (“Ebullient Cubans Make a Lot Out of a Little”) in which she noted, “the Grupo paints in a naive, narrative style and takes rural life as its subject. The work of the Rodriguezes is riotously colorful and stacked like a rush-hour train.”

Born 1966, Havana, Cuba
Something strange happens when Carlos Quintana paints. He goes into a meditative state not unlike that of Sufi Dervishes who spin round and round until they reach a state of bliss. Quintana, though, reaches a different kind of place, a place where an act of mischief is magically transformed into an eloquent work of art. But magic is only one part of the process. “[Painting] is something physical for me,” he tells Havana Cultura, “with violent movements, effort, truth…”
Quintana paints on giant surfaces, turning his canvasses upside-down as if to free his paint to drip in new directions. He spreads the paint with his hands. He dilutes colours with turpentine or with his own saliva. “Sometimes I even piss on my paintings,” he says, “so, yes, I interact with them in different ways.”

His paintings reflect the internal struggle of a man with extreme sensibility in a world torn with violence.

Roberto Fabelo

Roberto-Fabelo

1951 Born Guáimaro, Camagüey, Cuba
Currently lives and works in Havana, Cuba
Roberto Fabelo is a member of “the generation of sure hope” whose art was reinvigorated by the creative environment of the 1980s. Fabelo juxtaposes the naturalistic depiction of characters with their staged and compact placement on a sofa or behind theatrical curtains. His deft hand captures each character in a defining gesture or attitude, and clothes him or her in a way that reveals the individual’s own psychology. The realistic appearance of those beings suggests that the artist is like a hunter of faces, stalking his prey in the corners of Havana. But this humanity—genetically tainted by tropical animals and fruits, deities, shy mermaids, feathered heads—is a faithful reflection of his imagination. Clustered on a sofa or gathered around props in an empty theater, his characters wait in awe for an event that will never happen. They seldom look at or talk to each other, and even the dogs share the same baleful glare as their owners. The juicy, Rubenesque nudes do not inspire lust or competition, but only add to the strangeness of the situation.

Roberto Estopinan

estopinan_2

Roberto Estopiñán, a sculptor, draftsman, and printmaker, was born in Camaguey, Cuba on March 18, 1921. In 1961, the artist moved to New York, where he resided until 2002. Since the 1980s, he has been involved with the female torso as his favorite expressive form. The artist recently retired to Miami, FL.
Estopiñán has always been on a quest for a pure, essential form that he can load with content. He best demonstrates this quest with the obsessive use he has made of the female torso as his subject since 1978. This is an iconic subject found behind many manifestations of Western art, and of other arts as well. There are hundreds of variations on this theme in the hands of Estopiñán alone, but no two of them are alike. He revises, adds, subtracts, and transforms this essential female form in countless ways.”

Ramon Carulla

Ramon Carulla

Born in Havana, Cuba, 1936
Established Cuban artist Ramon Carulla’s work rests within the tradition of Latin American expressionist and figurative painting. His works constitute a point of convergence for color, emotion and design. Carulla uses a variety of supports including linen, paper and wood with noticeably provocative images, in a deliberate combination of fantasy and reality. Carulla’s recent works are quiet, meditative and idealistic. In speaking about his work Carulla states, “We all are jugglers, escapists, rockets, and entertainers in the interminable circus of life.” “The characters that appear in my works fluctuate from eccentric to gallant. Just as many human beings do, these capricious personages are always fighting with their sense of life, and their day to day existence

Carlos Rodriguez Cardenas

Born in 1962 Santi Spiritus, Cuba. Lives in New York
Cardenas’s work is defined by a singular idea expressed through a body of work that constitutes an aesthetic trajectory.
A romantic relationship between nature and architecture gives way to a stylized vision of intimate landscapes… a symbolic representation of the intersection between that which is natural and the power of human intelligence to fabricate, to create.
Taken as a whole, his work reflects a consistency of language and an authentic expression of a vision, a vision at once curious and mischievous, that at times can even transform into a bucolic experience. —-…. Jorge Moya

Luis+Enrique+Camejo

Currently lives and works in Havana, Cuba

Luis Enrique Camejo’s favourites themes are the relationship between man and his environment – especially urban environment at night – and Time.

These themes are materialized by lights and colours effects such as blurring or dripping, in order to evocate the speed of modern times, with just some details clear in the vagueness like a tree or – paradoxically – a car.

Ana Albertina Delgado

Delgado,Ana+Albertina-bio+pic

Of Delgado’s entire body of work, her pieces painted on paper are the most seductive. The medium gives her a freedom revealed by her treatment of the human figure. These pieces are distinguished by a unique subtlety, especially in the fine, soft traces that delineate her figures. Her personal style is undoubtedly best expressed in her sensitive treatment of her themes, as well as the exquisite perfection of her lines.
By reflecting her most intimate feelings from a feminine, intimate perspective, Delgado started a distinct trend in Cuban contemporary art, taken up by other artists over the subsequent decades. Artists such as Aimée García and Elsa Mora followed in her footsteps with similarly introspective works, tackling similar themes.
