This young emerging voice in the world of contemporary painting creates figurative and abstract compositions of profound psychological tension and energy. Danuel Méndez, born in Cuba, 1989, graduated from the prestigious San Alejandro Academy in 2010. In 2016 he arrived in Miami where he now lives.

The painting Where Freedom Begins (2020), is part of the “Lost in the Woods” series that Danuel initiated in 2019. In these depictions, the artist alludes to the challenges that post-modern information and internet age present to those who confront this futuristic lifestyle, unexpectedly and abruptly, without the benefits of a gradual incorporation to the social fabric of the advanced societies.

In this artwork the couple, in center stage, struggles to find a path amidst the dense foliage of wild vegetation. The thick and violently applied brushstrokes transmit a fearful, impenetrable and threatening climate where disorientation compounds the perils, while the solidarity of the couple towards each other exudes a glimmer of hope.
