More About this Item


Description: Roberto Fabelo studied painting first at the Escuela Nacional de Arte and later at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. Fabelo's most recent works in drawing, watercolor, oil, and installation pieces comment on the human condition, incorporating distorted human and animal figures into portraits and fantastic scenery. He employs elements of Expressionism and Surrealism in his work, while at the same time grounding the images in an almost academic and historical setting in order to question the division between fantasy and reality. Besides painting, Fabelo teaches art in Cuba and has also worked as an illustrator for novels by the Colombian author, Gabriel García Márquez. His work has been shown in more than forty personal exhibitions and over 500 group exhibitions worldwide, including Cuba, France, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and the United States. He has received numerous awards for his work, including first prize at the Primera Bienal Iberoamericana de la Acuarela, Viña del Mar, Chile (1996) and a UNESCO prize for the promotion of fine art (1996). Fabelo lives and works in Havana, Cuba.
