ARTIST POSTER 2021 : Humberto Benitez

 

Cubanostalgia‚Äôs 2021 poster was created by Humberto Benitez and will be unveiled on Thursday , July 8th 2021, at Paseo de las Artes in the  Regency Hotel in Miami (1000 NW 42nd Ave, Miami) at 12:30 PM.

 

Born in 1960 in Havana, Cuba, Humberto Benitez came to the United States at the age of 9. He spent his childhood within the small town of Guanajay, surrounded by the lush farmlands of "El Campo", within the western region of Pinar del Rio.

 

The tender years of his childhood would form much of the foundation of Humberto's inspiration and, interestingly enough, his technique: at an early age, Humberto would blend charcoal with red clay soil. He recalls vivid memories of interrupted, stunning moments from his youth, where color would make a pronounced influence within his current work: hues of yellow taken from the image of his mother's hands after working with tobacco; the reds and black from the mixed medium of the soil he would play in. Brilliant hues of orange from celebratory "farolas" mark his work to this day.

 

His work is collected nationally and internationally by private and corporate collectors, present corporate collection to include seven ships from NCL and Oceania Cruise Lines,multiple restaurants and corporate buildings
