The Year I was Born

About The Art Work

Jorge Luis Santos was born in 1973 in Cuba. He is known as one of the greatest exponents of Cuban abstraction. In the DNA series, the artist expresses himself with the strokes of a dynamic informalism, supported by an abundant use of material.


“Jorge Luis Santos’s expressive, dynamic portrayal of self-manifestation through abstraction and loud, indistinct brushstrokes. Exaggerated strokes of reds, whites and blacks muddle the obscured words and letters that peak through display a bold depiction of birth and the unknown.”
