Carlos Quintana

Carlos Alberto Quintana Ledsma graduated from the San Alejandro School of Fine Arts and the Superior Institute of Industrial Design, both in Havana, Cuba. His works show the influence of paradigmatic artists like Julian Schnabel, Georg Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer, and Martin Kippenberger. As a painter, Quintana’s pursuit of alternative paths to success has earned his reputation as a renegade “underground” artist. His pictorial works include codes and discourses, as well as an almost obsessive interest in bearing witness to the passages of everyday life. His tendency to use a palette of solid colors adds a symbolic character to his work and cultural references.

Quintana’s works have been shown worldwide and are part of the collections of the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana, the Gilbert Brownstone Foundation in Paris, the National Museum of Fine Arts in Panama City, and numerous private collections around the world.
