Jesus Rivera was born in Ciego de Avila, Cuba, in 1956. He attended the San Alejandro’s Academy of Fine Art and the Art Superior Institute, La Havana, Cuba. He has lived in the United States of America since 1995.
His new work is a challenge to the technical perfection and enjoyment of the creative process.
A world of convulsions expressed with expressionistic treatment in a landscape that hides as an esoteric world all the mysteries of Mt.
“From the beginning my work has been more than simply attempt to do or say, and more than a purpose to discern problems or make a pamphlet conceptual work, my work has always been primarily intended to operate as an independent entity and creation have always given priority to the implementation of the action, the sheer enjoyment of the creative process which collects the experiences and in turn passed on to the other, making a complex mechanism of communication and education, purifying the soul, making one a better human being in every sense of the word and consolidating the status of artist.
“Every day study the consequences of a more technical and formal purification, to leave so that those responsible for the most accurate criticism and the arts scholars decipher and perpetuate my reasons.”
