Esteban Leyva “MOTION CITY”
10 April – 10 May 2014
Preview Cocktail: 10 April. 5-9 pm
Opening Reception: 12 April 2014, 6-10 pm
Esteban Leyva is one of the leading Cuban contemporary artists. Graduated in 1976 from the Academia de Bellas Artes de San Alejandro
in La Habana , he is considered today as one of the most important representatives of a new abstract art in his home country.
His large-scale, extremely expressive paintings seem to be flooded with light and colors where large striking gestures are offset
by delicate, almost sketchy works. Esteban pretends his artworks to be a response to contemporary life—to globalization and the desire
for a universal language, to the technological revolution, to new materials, and to the endless pursuit of something novel.
The work of Esteban Leyva has been present at international art scenes since the 1983 and until now artist collaborates with several
commercial galleries and cultural institutions through numerous exhibitions worldwide. For more information about artist /images of
