CENIA ESCALONA BORJAS
Bayamo, Cuba
1947

Cenia Escalona Borjas, born on 16 January 1947 in Sabanilla, Holguin She lives and works under the stage name Xenia in Bayamo. She is self-taught, which means that she has acquired the art of painting over the years. Her art is therefore called naive and her painting style could be attributed to Pointilism. Since 2007, she has participated in many exhibitions, especially in Eastern Cuba. She won many first prizes, among others at the Festival Naçional de Arte Naif. Her paintings are created in often months of work by stringing together many small dots and brush strokes. Her paintings have a great symbolic content on the one hand, and on the other hand they surprise by the infinite number of details they contain. A great artist!
