Niels Reyes (Cuba, 1977)

Graduated in Visual Arts (1998) at the Professional School of Arts in Trinidad, and specialized in Painting (2006) at the Higher Institute of Arts in Havana. He has had numerous solos and has participated in several group exhibitions both in Cuba and abroad, mainly Europe.

His seal as an artist always has been the large format portrait expressionist style, in which he does not merely illustrate faces, but creates characters full of drama and intensity. He focuses on a theme of remembrance: portraits that symbolize emotions, memories, personalities and moments of his past. Therefore, his portraits have a characteristic expressive strength that results from the juxtaposition of several oil layers and the scratching of those layers in order to delineate the traits of his characters.
