Ernesto Garcia Pena, Cuban (1949 - )

Ernesto García Peña, one of the most renowned and recognized Cuban contemporary visual artists, has a sound professional training. In 1987 he got a degree from the Cuban High Art Institute (ISA) and has been a university professor of drawing, painting and engraving.

His work is characterized by exquisite sketching and powerful colours and reflects a poetic lyricism with soft colours and nuances that capture our attention and make us accomplices of his figures and representations.


Ernesto Estévez García was born in Havana in 1967. He was a photo journalist and science reporter, and is a self-taught painter who focusses on landscape and nature.
