Darwin Leon | Cuba

Darwin Leon is a Cuban artist residing in Miami, graduated from AI Miami International University of Art & Design. His work is rooted in revising classical methods to create contemporary forms of expression. His training has included both aspects of the Renaissance like chiatoscuro technique, with his own surreal style of expression influenced by irony and cubism. His art mirrors the situations and social issues of the context while pointing towards the foundations of humanity that continue to govern and motivate. Perhaps this motivation is tied to Leon’s personal experience as an immigrant in Spain and citizen in the USA. His original paintings are expressive and surreal, exploring the human form with humor and detail.  The human form, nature, distortion, and surreal scenes haunt the beautiful oeuvre of Leon’s work. Leon now resides in Florida teaching drawing and painting alongside his own practice.
