Known for his large format blurry paintings with dotted texts and his endless investigation into the structure and language of an artwork, Raúl Cordero (Havana, 1971) represents through his work “the other Cuban art”. Far from the standards of the Revolution art, and without falling into the usual topics tackled by most artists from in and out of the island. Text installations, sculptures and videos emerge from his work in painting, establishing a very personal universe that connects aesthetic traditions like painting after the invention of photography and text based conceptual art.
