Alexey Cubas

Cuba

Biography

Translation in progress

Alexey Cubas, born in 1990 in Media Luna, Cuba, is a rising star of contemporary abstract art. He completed a four-year degree in Visual Arts at the Academia de Bellas Artes de Oriente Profecional in Cuba in 2008 and in 2011 he became a Member of the Registro Nacional de Creadores. Alexey has participated in various collective and personal exhibitions in his homeland as well as in Zurich, Switzerland. He is influenced by artists such as Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Alexey’s works result from intense clashes with life and his search for answers to questions about infinity. Alexey’s abstract paintings are pictures of his perception, ideology and culture. Inspired by the contrasts of life, such as the economic and political realities of his native Cuba and his emigration to forge a new life in Switzerland, he paints large-format, expressive and intuitive canvases. He takes inspiration from aerial photographs of the earth and the sea, which are implemented abstractly and according to his personal vision. The viewer gets lost in the wild, undefined landscapes that touch the emotions and provide a different view of an island in transition.

“I’m not specifically interested in politics,” he says. “But I have to admit that politics ironically is also the source of my inspiration, because it is very present in our lives. And I think that art without politics would not exist.” Alexey recently completed series Sin Filtro and Auf dem Boden (inspired by his homeland).
