Ernesto Garcia Pena, 1949 | Abstract painter


Painter, drawer and engraver, Ernesto Garcia Peña has a natural tendency towards fantasy and hedonism, where he ingrains his artworks with a perceptible chromatic gradation of musical notes to express his feelings and emotions towards sensual subjects.
The fine drawing, the explosion of greens and blues, the delicate transparencies, all bestow a voluptuous sensuality to his obsessive search for beauty.
Plant motifs, with an evanescent lightness, create a dreamlike atmosphere that the artist controls at will to tone down or emphasize the eroticism of his enigmatic women or the mating of his levitating couples.
He studied art at the Instituto Superior de Arte. His paintings are part of the collection of Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Cuba, Museo de Arte Memorial América Latina, Brasil, Museo de Arte Moderno Miskolc, Hungría and Museo de Arte de Las Américas, Nicaragua.

Alexi Torres, 1976

Cuban painter Alexi Torres creates works that capture the creative powers of the universe as well as the problems facing it. He grapples with how to express the influences of the past, possibilities of the future and the responsibilities of the now. Torres creates woven canvasses which immortalize influential figures and emblems past and present.
He paints leaves, feathers, and other organic materials to create his works, which represent everything from Oprah Winfrey to Pablo Picasso to an unnamed soldier. His works are all-natural, fragile and ephemeral, serving as an answer to his own appreciation of Earth’s needs.
