Pablo Carreño

"My Religion...painting. My hobby...painting. My favorite food...scrambled acrylics with oil and turpentine sauce with a dash of watercolors ala charcoal. Afterward..a cup of espresso...and if available, a good Havana Cigar."

Every great artist is known for a definitive style or school. Cuban born Pablo Carreño defines himself as an Expressionist. His paintings and murals bring a brilliance and emotion to the canvas that reflects his explosive temperament. He is a powerful colorist as well as a consummate draftsman.

Not afraid to experiment, his works are dominated by thrusting forms painted in vibrant yellows, purples, reds and blues. The themes most seductive to his imagination are women, jazz musicians, cigars and florals..

Red stiletto heeled shoes and yellow sneakers are found in many of his paintings, in homage to Greenwich Village, where he lives.

With mournful, ecstatic jazz playing in the background, Carreño paints large canvases on the floor using his hands as brushes. His remarkable images of jazz musicians seem to capture the intoxicating rhythms and syncopated soul-sounds echoing from the current rebirth of American jazz.

His Africa series captures the intensely vivid landscape of that continent and the striking interpretations and dazzling colors of his floral art both uplifts and energizes the spirit.

Having been born in Cuba, Carreño has a natural affinity for cigars. As expressed in his imagery, both men and women share the enjoyment of a good Cuban cigar.
