IGNACIO MERIDA
Havana
1963

Ignacio Fernandez Merida was born in Havana in 1963. Since then he lives and works in Havana. He graduated from the San Alejandro Academy of Art in Havana and soon participated in exhibitions at home and abroad, often in Holland, Italy and Portugal. He works with iron discipline and created a remarkable oeuvre. His paintings reflect his life in contemporary Cuba, they are metaphors of real Cuban life translated into a poetic visual language. His pictures often seem like surreal and bizarre sketches and thus transcend reality on a rich artistic level. A gifted Cuban artist, simply great!
