Eduardo Nario Morell Bio and CV
Born on July 2, 1975 in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba.
Eduardo’s artistic interests led him to approach the Osvaldo Mursulí Casa de Cultura in that central Cuban city in 2005 for direction, and he began personal studies under the specialists of that institution.
By 2007 he had presented his first personal exhibition entitled "Time and Space", opening new doors as he deepened connections with the artistic field of the city. With a "minimalist" essence at the dawn of his career, he rose among local creators with an aura of unsurpassed skill at small format painting (miniatures) on canvas, with works as small as 0.2 millimeters. The miniaturist format had a revolutionary impact on the local artistic community, motivating creators to leave their comfort zone and solidifying friendship guilds among both artists and fans of the technique.
It was at this time that Eduardo met Yasiel Elizagaray Cárdenas who worked as an art instructor and took him on as his student to receive classes and instructions. This working relationship became a lasting friendship and they collaborators today. Eduardo joined Elizagaray’s project “Yasiel P.”, along with other self-taught creators in Trinidad, Cuba to carry out educational workshops and projects focused around specific painting techniques and themes.
Most recently, Eduardo has concentrated on the urban landscape as a leitmotif to apply impressionist techniques by which he incorporates city scenes and his love of classic American cars, focusing on Cuba as a "rolling museum."
Eduardo’s art may be judged in its favor, with postcolonial roots present in a creation that objectively presents ongoing complex matters of cultural identity, ethnicity, the fall from grace of colonial adventures, and a continuum of relationships between entities of “Us” and “the Other, all the while sweeping away zombie formalisms to freshly position his work with uniquely attractive tones and nuance for the final viewer.
