Enrique Casas Castellanos was born in Matanzas, Cuba, in 1976. He has been a professional artist since 1997, following his graduation from the Provincial School of Plastic Arts in Matanzas. The artist lives and works in Cuba, where he has won first prize in the prestigious Leopoldo Romañach Landscape Salon.
The artist’s work revives a neo-impressionistic approach to landscape, using visible brush work and unblended color to command dream-like, subjective scenes of his native land. Casas’ Cuba is a world of distance and yearning, a paradise lost where color, light, and form crystallize into a stirring and nostalgic vision.
Enrique Casas is exclusively represented by Cernuda Arte.
