Born in 1985 in Manzanillo, Cuba – lives and works in Havana, Cuba

The Cuban painter’s large-scale artworks occur as floating worlds of colours, that become vibrant shapes of a seemingly endless landscape. The painting materials are directly applied by hand, encoursted and formed at the canvass, later warped with plastic foil and removed again, giving the works its unique forceful dramatic character. 
José Yaque creates sheer endless sceneries, tempting the beholders’ view to get lost. His paintings, which the artist calls “open air mines” has been exhibited internationally, such as at the 1st Biennial de Arte Contemporáneo de Portugal or the Festival of Visual Arts Glasgow, among others. Further Yaque was represented at the Cuban Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennial in 2017.
