Unpack Studio is pleased to present an exhibition of drawings by master draftsman Jesus Gastell.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with an essay written by international curator Dannys Montes de Oca Moreda.
Jesus Gastell is a mid-career artist who lives and works in Cuba. Gastell earned a BFA from Escuela Nacional de Artes (ENA 1983) and graduated from the prestigious Instituto Superior de Artes (ISA 1988) in Havana with a degree in Drawing and Painting.
Instead of only establishing himself as a master of representation, Jesus Gastell uses his extraordinary abilities to reveal the hidden connections between "the real" and our cultural perception of it. His artwork operates as a continuous exercise of questioning models, assuming the nature of intellectual pleasure as an illuminating experience. He has exhibited widely in Cuba and internationally. His work is represented in collections in Canada, England, Holland, China, Germany, Spain, Peru, Italy, Japan, Cuba and the USA.
