Jacqueline Brito Jorge (Cuban Artist)

                  This artist came to my attention during the last Havana Biennial where she had a solo exhibit at the La Cabana Fortress venue. The theme was ships, the series of paintings on canvas were called 'Navegar', which translated means to navigate and in this sense, to sail.
                   She has had solo exhibits in Cuba, Colombia & USA and well as many others as part of a group all over the world....Costa Rica, Spain, Martinique, Italy, Germany, France, Dominican Republic, Canada, Lebanon, Colombia and many cities across the United States and Galleries all over Havana through the years.
                   Jacqueline Brito was born in Havana in 1973. After completing her years in the Elementary School of Plastic Arts in Havana she went on the graduate from the San Alejandro Provincial School of Plastic Arts (Havana) in 1991 and finally finishing her studies at the Superior Institute of Art in 1996 specializing in painting. Since graduating from ISA Jacqueline has been teaching in the school's Painting Department. I'm hoping I can visit her gallery-house on my next trip in a couple of weeks.


  1. Trying to get in touch with Jacqueline Brito could you send me her email or phone number? Going to Cuba next month and want to purchase some of her art! Thank you

    1. Hello Jodi,
      Please excuse the delayed response as I was in Cuba at the time and difficult to communicate while there. Besides, the information was back home in Toronto. Jacqueline Brito is a favourite of mine since the last Bienal in Havana where she had an exhibit.
