Guillermo Esquerra Bio and CV

GUILLERMO ESQUERRA DIAZ
 
Guillermo Esquerra graduated in 1999 from the Acadamia de Artes Plásticas "Oscar Fernandez Morera" in Trinidad de Cuba.
While the apparent simplicity of the imaginative and fantastical figures in the Guillermo's work may seem to place him firmly in the growing outsider movement in Cuban art, a closer look at the technique involved reveals a more complicated story. Guillermo's acrylic works on canvas make use of brief dabs and strokes to create a quasi-pointillist effect of color blending that changes for the viewer depending on the distance and angle from which the work is viewed, while his detailed pen and ink papers incorporate the precise and patient line work of a well trained and practiced artist.
Along with over 14 years of personal and collective exhibitions in Cuba, his pieces can be found in private collections in Germany, Spain, the U.S.A., France, England, Italy and Portugal. His current work is concentrated on detailed pen and ink work and the exploration of naive painting styles in acrylic, pastel and mixed media.
