Painters

Cuban artists

R10 - real name Jorge Rodriguez Diez, was born in 1969. Graduated from the Higher Institute of Design in 1995.

The subversion of the traditional codes of advertising graphics and political propaganda is the central axis of his paintings. He was interested in reflecting on and questioning Cuba's conflicted past. He uses the graphics of period magazines and recycles images typical of Cuban history to establish a close connection with current reality. Therefore, R10 is not just a chronicler of the past, but also an actor of the present. Postmodern pastiche, irony and sarcasm are essential strategies in his work, means with which the artist expresses the most complex aspirations of Cuban news. R10 has succeeded in creating its own style with visual richness and metaphorical depth as highlighted by the works selected for the exhibition.

R10 received the first prize in the European Union poster design competition and the first prize in the graphic art competition in the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Frida Kahlo and the 20th anniversary of Diego's death Rivera.

His works are part of the collection of Factoría Habana, La Habana, Cuba; Lise Charlotte Aune, MAP Gallery, Oslo, Norway; Susan Adelman, United States; Beverly Walton, United States; Kathy Along, United States; Michael Reese and Joshua Snowden, United States; Jennifer Trewhella, Australia.
