Is it not the act of painting, a celebration of the present, an affirmation of being alive? Well, it may also be a way to rediscover the world.

About Ernesto Garcia Sanchez

Ernesto Garcias Sanches was born December 27th 1989 in Havana, Cuba. He lived in a small neighborhood called Luyanó, until the age of five. Then, in 1995, his family moved to Santos Suarez neighborhood. Both neighborhoods are in the same district. I attended Roberto Casals Elementary school from 1996 to 2002. After that, I went to Simón Bolívar Junior High School where I graduated in 2004. After graduation, I spent a whole year preparing myself, studying some art disciplines like: drawing, painting, sculpture and others…and the next year I entered the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts. I started to participate in some group exhibitions since my first year there. Four years later I obtained my degree and became a professional artist. I did one year of social service work at the Academy of Fine Arts as an Assistant Professor. Also, I had my first experiences working as a professional, organizing some exhibitions for the students, while in San Alejandro. I’m currently finalizing the fifth year of the Painting Specialty at The Visual Arts Faculty of ISA (University of the Arts). From 2009, until this date, I have made five Solo Shows.

When I think about painting, the idea of the essential immediately comes to me, the relationship between the elements of the pictorial medium with synthesis, with pigmentation in its simplest form. The pictorial elements comprise the greatness of their formal simplicity but at the same time, they also have philosophical connotations. Is it not the act of painting, a celebration of the present, an affirmation of being alive? Well, it may also be a way to rediscover the world.
