Biography

Biography

Carlos Estévez (b. 1969, Cuba) has been creating work for more than 30 years, consistently exploring and documenting the multi-layered relationship between man and the greater world. Using philosophical elements as well as his own experiences and ideas, Estévez weaves numerous themes in his steadfast discovery process, including anatomy, music, astrology, contemporary social settings, spirituality, and much more, to create intricately-detailed, often-metaphorical interpretations. Similar to the process used by alchemists, Estévez’s goal to gain knowledge and greater understanding of both individual existence and larger societies serves as the basis of his work. 

Estévez currently lives and works in Miami. His education began at the Escuela Elemental de Artes Plásticas, continued at the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts, and was completed at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana in 1992, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts. His work in painting, drawing, sculpture and installations has received international praise, notably the Grand Prize in the First Salon of Contemporary Cuban Art in 1995. He has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions at prestigious institutions such as the Fine Art Museum in Havana, Cuba, The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University, and the Center of Contemporary Art in New Orleans, Louisiana. His works may also be found in public and private collections worldwide, including the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana, The Ludwig Forum in Aachen, Germany, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Perez Art Museum in Miami, Florida.
