Orestes Hernández Palacios Holguin, Cuba, b. 1981

Orestes Hernández lives and works in Havana, Cuba.

 

He belongs to the aspiring generation of Cuban artists and is regarded by artists and institutions as the promise of his generation. He is known for strong expressive and cartoon-like representations. He unites aesthetics, social affairs and politics, and thus puts his finger on the pulse of the times on this politically charged island. Realism bounces off science fiction fantasies. His drawings and paintings are especially characteristic of graphic images with text fragments.
