I was born in the Cárdenas’s city, in the county of Matanzas. Parallelly to the primary and secondary studies I attended to an Art School of the Culture’s House in Cárdenas that helped to foment my abilities and later to enter in the Professional Art School of Matanzas. In this School (2009 -2013), an interest grows for the pop painting and the style “illuminist”. I began to experience with stencils, what opened the way to create my style with the use of the net border. I traced myself to defend and to rescue the occupation of the painting and some features of academic rules. In January 2012, I decided with two of my partner’s class Ronny and Christian to create the group “Ellos Picos”, we intended topics like the culture of masses bringing some behaviors of commercial propaganda toward Cuba. I began to work in big paintings murals in the Third year; they were portraits of figures of the culture so much Cuban as foreigners, our interest was to motivate the study of the Art History in the Academy. I centered my graduation thesis in the study of the anurans, they were very habitual in my home and starting from taken pictures and studies to the natural, so I conformed a series of paintings that approached the topic of the value of the Cuban work mainly. This thesis it’s called “Demented crazies with mice in the head", it is as calling crazy to somebody three times, only this kind of person would be able to see the good things of the reality, because in general, we only think and see the bad sides. With this thesis, I obtained the gold’s title in the specialty of Plastic Arts. I fulfilled two years of military obligatory service, in this period was born the series “Demented crazies with mice in the head in a Military Unit”, where my vision of the visual arts turned rawish because I adopted critical postures with the Cuban militarism. At this time was practically impossible, together with my group, to expose the works belonging to this period. I intruded in the clothes design, modifying garments mainly of dressing masculine where it has added my personal logotype and it created as species of a military uniform, where a little comic frog is in the epaulettes as an unusual logo. My other two group partners had their own uniforms. We used these garments as a protest to the militarism. The work "Tuto, white cat with spangle eyes in a cytoplasm puddle with the great spitter" belongs to this period. Triptych that shows each one of us dressing the military suit designed. Later was born "With the eyes half closed", a piece that recaptures the moment of revolutionary Che's tragic death. Here Che is looked after strange characters of doubtful origin and most military, putting a series of thoughts that rotated around the event. A new series that encouraged certain air of quite grotesque eroticism arose, where the pornography was practically the referential of the paintings, named "Because there are businesses like that" in a country like mine, where all act of sexual propaganda is illegal. The title mentioned to the small changes in the Cuban economy, at that time you could open your own businesses, but it had to be only the types of activities specified by the government. These canvases plead to express us such as we are, what will help us to know our difficulties to obtain a better system of life. The series was censured in my town of Cárdenas, and only it was exposed for hardly one week in the province of Camagüey, where a team of critical bet to exhibit the pieces in a virtual gallery in the website: www.art.inhavana.net. It is oil the type of painting used in almost all the canvases of this stage, helping to supplement more my defense for the pictorial occupation, and due to the shortage of other materials. I have worried to use a spectral colors range. The pictorial technique that mostly I do is Alla Prima, what allow me a bigger freedom in all the senses; the piece can vary a lot in the course of its realization because there is not any guide to continue or pattern that determines the final appearance. With each work I look for somebody else can appreciate a complex drawing work and painting, each piece it is a challenge because it should overcome the previous one. My scenes are always populated, it is very important the presence of human life although in most of the cases it is observed that the characters are not purely as us. In general, I work a lot with randomized and not very probable scenes, always with an irony tiny piece. I was working as Ellos Picos, until December of 2017. I am living, painting and studying Digital Design in Barcelona, Spain. I am working in a new series. Spatial science fiction is one of the most important topic in these pieces. How will be our first travel to other planet? Having an especial interest in quantic mechanic, I want to develop this mysterious concept in my art, I think that this will be one of the biggest jump for the humanity.
