About this artwork
Installation in oil on canvas, compose of 3 principal pieces big format(78 x 56 ") with 4 pieces of small format,
This iconic series “Crónicas de un artista cubano” (Chronicles of a Cuban Artist), I has been working since 2013, is one of the most proli c series of my carrier,I make use of the carnavalization and guides the spectator behind the stage, showing you the swings of the contemporary Cuban art as a diasporic entity. For this, I uses the most dissimilar symbols: Greco-Latin mythology, Renaissance painting, Flemish Baroque, Pop art, American comics, and well-rooted icons in Cuban culture such as bear, caiman, amenco, wolf, snake, deer, and the image of the Republic, summarized in the Phrygian cap, among many others.
The substantial series, invariably performed in oil on canvas, stands out, first and above all, for its impeccable technical mastery, being just this savoir faire which allows the artist to fully develop this proposal that we could well qualify as neo-baroque.
