Vladimir Iglesias Geraldo was born in 1964, Matanzas, Cuba. Iglesias is a talented photo-realist painter inspired by the historic streets of Cuba, and the picturesque beauty of the natural world. Iglesias’ resplendently vivid depictions of the tropical landscape are made of rich and intense layered colours, the effect is at once mesmerizing and super real. As well, for those who have visited Cuba, those vignettes of the mid century automobiles, faded majesty of architecture, often empty streets is truly evocative. In the landscapes, there is a reflection of the Cuban neo-classical inheritance of European painting.We also see reflections of the worlds of Surrealism and Pop Art, particularly in the works featuring cars afloat immersed magically in the ocean, a commentary on the fallibility of dreams of the other side. As the door to Cuba and its exceptional artistic culture opens to America, this is a unique opportunity to own work that reflects the history of Cuban art.
