Ernesto Villanueva (Cuban Artist)

                   I've been seeing this artist's works hanging on walls in Havana for a few years now and after doing a little research it seems that what I've been seeing is from the series of paintings that he did in 2009 called "Summer in my Garden", they're unmistakable. He didn't start his scholastic life with the intent on being an artist, he has a Bachelor's degree in engineering but left that life to pursue this one, eventually graduating from the Higher Technical College Institute José Antonio Echeverría in Engineering and Drawing in 1994. His first solo exhibition named “Bosquejos de Colores” was in 1995 at the Mariano Rodríguez Art Gallery, Villa Panamericana, Havana, Cuba. He was born in Havana in 1970 and still lives there. His abstract paintings have been displayed all over the world but with more frequency in Europe. Below are are pictures of some of his more current works from the "Summer in my garden" collection. He also does sculptures and printmaking.
