Ernesto Jesus Garcia
Ernesto Jesus Garcia, the study of Cuba
Born in Havana in 1970. Graduated in 1989 from the Academy of Plastic Arts San Alejandro, Marianao, and in 1994 from the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in Havana.
From 1996 and for more than ten years he was professor of painting and drawing at the Academy of Fine Arts San Antonio de los Baños in Artemisa, Cuba. He then moved to Havana and became Esterio Segura's assistant. His work pays homage to the great Cuban figurative school. Through the series of black holes, Ernesto Garcia talks about the feeling of traveling through time when you are in Cuba, as if you were halfway between several eras.
He has participated in numerous group exhibitions such as “Si Tim Has Tim Vale” (Higher Institute of Art of Havana) during the 4th Havana Biennale in 1991, “No Valen Guayabas Verdes” (Higher Institute of Art of Havana) in 1992, “The metaphors of the temple” (Center for the Development of Visual Arts of Havana) in 1993, “Erotic Green Humor” (Biennale of San Antonio de Los Baños, Artemisa) in 1995, “The Nuclear Collective” (Alternative Soho private gallery, Havana) in 2010, a permanent exhibition at Residence Ella Cisneros (Havana) in 2016 and finally “La Noche Boca Arriba” (La Acacia Gallery, Havana) in 2018.
In 2019, he made a solo exhibition at Studio Esterio Segura in Havana.
