Cuba

Biography
Misleidys Castillo Pedroso was born with severe hearing loss, and without the proper social and medical supports, and has led an isolated life in her native Cuba. Unable to speak or communicate through traditional means, Misleidys has developed her own visual language of painted figures, mythological creatures, demons, and human bodies that are partially exposed, revealing brightly colored organs, muscle, and tissue. The paintings are subsequently cut out and installed on the wall of her family’s home with precisely trimmed and spaced pieces of tape. The figures and body parts vary enormously in size but are of consistent aesthetic sensibility and quality.
