CUBA

JOSÉ ÁNGEL VINCENCH

PRESENTATION

Born in Holguin, Cuba, in 1973. He attended the Elementary School of Plastic Arts in Holguín, Cuba, then the Higher School of the same city and finally the Higher Institute of Art in Havana.

Conceptual artist who, unlike the Orthodox representatives of such a tendency, has always intentionally preferred to "alter" his works with sociological, religious and political content. His conceptualism is guided by questions about Cuban social life. Intellectual, rational and analytical artist, he clearly tends to take a critical position within art. After having developed his work around Cuban beliefs of African origin, establishing a link between the social, the religious, the ritual and the myth from the interpretation of symbols and the composition of poetic metaphors, art thus became for him a weapon of confrontation and denunciation, an act of faith in freedom and democracy. Vincench has created and continues to produce one of the most daring, courageous and important works of contemporary Cuban art.

In 2019 his work was very noticed at the Havana Biennale. Works by José Ángel Vincench belong, among others, to the collections of the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana, the Frost Museum in Miami, the Rubin Foundation in New York, the Perez collection in Miami, the UBS art collection. , the Chris von Christierson Collection in London, the Celia Birbragher collection in Miami, the CIFO Collection in Miami and many private collections around the world.
