Gabriel Sánchez Toledo 

 

Born in Cabaiguán in 1973. He studied painting at the Samuel Feijoo School of Art in the province of Villa Clara, where he graduated in June 2001. In the same year he was awarded the Academic Prize of the Higher Institute of Art. Art and Academy San Alejandro of Havana.

 

He has created, through abstraction, a unique and authentic artistic language. He is known 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.

 

Since 2003, Gabriel Sánchez Toledo has been organizing personal and collective exhibitions in Cuba and also in the United States. In 2015, on the occasion of the twelfth biennale of Havana, his personal exhibition "out Safari" (Zone Franche) was very noticed.
