Aguedo Alonso (Cuban, Born 1938) graduated from the School of Visual Arts in Havana. He has a romantic outlook of life and an insatiable desire for beauty, he loves all aspects of nature and the scenery of his native country.
Seen as a controversial artist, the series ‘Levitaciones’ is a criticism of the Cuban bureaucratic system while the series ‘Rostros Latinoamericanos’ examines the human figure, to men and women whose faces have been carved by work into to unornamented plain faces.
His paintings have been widely exhibited in the UK, America, Norway, Bulgary, Japan, France and wider afield. He was awarded with the Honourable Distinction of National Culture in 1997.
