CUBAN FINE ARTS GALLERY of New York City is pleased to present Arte Cubano: A Virtual Exhibition. Featuring works by established artists like Kcho, Manuel Mendive, and Nelson Dominguez alongside the newest generation of up-and-coming artists including Aneli Pupo Rodriguez, Francisco Nunez Martinez, and Gustavo del Valle, this group exhibition is a curated blend of the contemporary Cuban art scene. Spanning a medley of different styles and mediums from the melancholy yet charged brushwork of Kcho to the theatrically deconstructed images of Nana del Riego, Arte Cubano celebrates the diverse body of work born in Cuba. Rich with underlying subtext, emotion, and varying perspectives on Cuba’s dynamic landscape, the works of these 7 artists represent the multifaceted face of contemporary Cuban art.

Lorenzo’s work focuses on the nuance of emotion, and the movement of life. “I have an irrefutable passion for photographing the inaccessible, contradictory, and unique people and happenings around the world. My goal is to heuristically teach others to explore the world through their own lens.
