ERNESTO JESÚS GARCÍA

PRESENTATION

Born in Havana in 1970. Graduated in 1989 from the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts, Marianao, and in 1994 from the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in Havana.

From 1996 and during longer than ten years, he was painting and drawing teacher at the San Antonio de los Baños Academy of Fine Arts in Artemisa, Cuba. He then moved to Havana and became the assistant to Esterio Segura. His work pays homage to the great Cuban figurative school. Through the series of black holes, Ernesto Garcia, talks about the impression of time travel when you are in Cuba, as if you were halfway between several eras. The artist, who works in the studio of Esterio Segura, pays tribute to the great Cuban figurative school.

He participated in numerous collective exhibitions such as “Si Tim Has Tim Vale” (Higher Art Institute of Havana) during the 4th Havana Biennale in 1991, “No Valen Guayabas Verdes” (Higher Art Institute of Havana) in 1992, “The metaphors of the temple” (Havana Visual Arts Development Center) in 1993, “Erotic Green Humor” (Biennial of San Antonio de Los Baños, Artemisa) in 1995, “The Nuclear Collective” (Alternative Soho private gallery, Havana) in 2010, a permanent exhibition at the Ella Cisneros Residence (Havana) in 2016 and finally “La Noche Boca Arriba” (La Acacia Gallery, Havana) in 2018.

 

In 2019, he did a personal exhibition at Studio Esterio Segura in Havana.
