Gabriel Sanchez Toledo and conceptual nature
Gabriel Sánchez Toledo was born in Cabaiguán in 1973. He studied painting at the Samuel Feijoo art school in the province of Villa Clara, where he graduated in June 2001. In the same year, he obtained the academic prize for l '' Higher Institute of Art and Academy of San Alejandro de La Havana.
He created, through abstraction, a unique and authentic artistic language. He is recognized for his conceptual and formal reinterpretations and the renewal he brings to the traditional genre of landscape painting. It is a work with a very personal imprint, close to figurative abstraction, almost expressionist where composition and dreamlike conceptualization of landscapes literally bring the viewer into unreal spaces.
Gabriel Sánchez Toledo has had a series of solo and group exhibitions since 2003 in Cuba but also in the United States. In 2015, on the twelfth Havana Biennale, his personal exhibition “out Safari” (Free Zone) was very noticed.
