In this section you can have immediate access to the articles of CdeCuba Art Magazine, organized on the basis of the most recent publications. They are brief texts that are not restricted to a specific formula: you will be able to realize the diversity of approaches and the freedom our authors have to develop their writing profile. Above all, they seek to communicate quickly with the reader, who is offered a presentation of the aesthetic-conceptual proposal of each artist.

The group of writers is made up of critics and specialists who reside both inside and outside Cuba, of different ages and life experiences; emerging voices with new visions and others more established with a career in the criticism and study of Cuban Art.

Contemporary Cuban Art Articles

The main objective gravitates on the need to offer a wide and varied panorama that enriches the debates around Contemporary Cuban Art, with different reflections and approaches to the poetics of each artist; made with equally diverse tools: we can find orientations with historical, philosophical, aesthetic, sociological, anthropological analysis, applied to understand the discursive lines of each creator.

Contemporary Cuban Art Alexis Lago, artista cubano (Por Maikel José Rodríguez Calviño)

Alexis Lago

Antonio Espinosa

César Castillo

César Castillo delves into the folds of a political art in his own way. The figure of the forgotten antihero on the periphery of the local circuit is his theme.

Marco Arturo Herrera

Marco Arturo Herrera’s work is a backdrop for a reality that becomes monochromatic, where the history of a people fades in its impotence.

Ronald Vill

Joniel León

Cuban Art Ernesto Benítez

Alberto Lorente

Alberto Lorente starts from chaos without being obsessed with perfect interpretation, free of ideologies: he clones beings in themselves that are incomplete.

Gertrudis Rivalta

Héctor Frank

Approaching Hector Frank’s work means confirming once again that the history of art represents a territory mined by the most diverse enigmas.

Hilda María R. Enríquez

Hildamaría Enríquez’s creations tend to open a space between whose margins violence, delicacy, lucid contemplation, eroticism, life and death drive coexist.

Leonardo Gutiérrez

“Over the shoulder” is a photographic series that addresses two lines of work; the theme of the portrait and my interest in objects as a deposit of meaning.

Julio Lorente

“My work is the symbolic translation of my critical thinking,” says Julio Lorente just as 60 years of the revolutionary triumph of 1959 are being completed.
