(b in Havana, Cuba in 1955). Artist, sculptor and ceramicist, she left for the United States when she was twelve with her family through the Freedom Flights and grew up in Miami; a Cuban immigrant community. As a young adult, she won the Gold Key Award in painting and several honorable mentions as she continued her pursuit of the arts during her college years. In 1989, she moved to Mexico City and continued painting and exhibiting with Cuban and Mexican artists. She returned to Miami in 2006 and continued her work, winning several awards for her figurative ceramics in the state of Florida. Perez has been praised for her command of gestures, making her sculptures expressionistic and powerful which, combined with the juxtaposition to found objects, creates an organic symbiosis.
is an artist born in Barranquilla, Colombia, of Andalusian and Lebanese descent. Alés moved to the United States in 1984 and graduated from Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, in New York City. She received her MFA from the Miami International University of Art and Design. She is a dedicated student of philosophy and world religions, her spirituality emerging as central themes in her work. She has participated in over 30 collective and individual exhibitions in the US and Central and South America. For most of her artistic life, Angela’s art work has been the story teller of spiritual search. Since 2010, her work has gradually moved towards a more carnal expression. She explores not just the flesh, but that of the canvas as well. The figure is still present in a more abstract way.
Milena Martínez Pedrosa
(b. Havana, Cuba, 1971) is a Cuban visual artist currently residing in Miami, Florida. She graduated from the Escuela Elemental de Artes Plasticas (Havana, Cuba) in 1986, before continuing her training at the Academia de Arte “San Alejandro” (Havana, Cuba). She graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Instituto Superior de Arte (Havana, Cuba) in 1995. Pedrosa’s unique style stems from her pride of being Cuban; her background and history of her native Cuba acting doubly as her muse and artistic inspiration, resulting in mysterious collages of realistic and surrealist figures or kaleidoscopic genre scenes depicting the hustle-bustle of her Havana city. She has participated in several groups and solo exhibitions in Cuba, Latin America, and the USA.
