Ernesto García Peña, born in March 1949, stands out for the uniqueness of his paintings, in which he combines large volumes with lines that define bodies and figures. In his canvas, shapes are mixed as a whole in which the blue, pink and green tones speak for themselves. Nature and man go hand in hand in each of his pieces. Graduated in the School for Instructors of Art in 1965, of the National School of Art (Painting) in 1970 and Licensed of Plastic Arts (Engraving) of the Superior Institute of Art in 1987, is a figure that has navigated by the different stages of development Postrevolutionary cultural partner. As a pupil of Servando Cabrera Moreno, the erotic in his paintings is undoubtedly one of the themes that more frequently the artist works. Of strong tradition in the Cuban Art, the naked bodies turn on the canvases with a soft but precise brushstroke, with a delicate but present stroke. Garcia Peña’s work has seen to be reminiscent of not only his mentor Cabrera Moreno’s work but also that of Carlos Enriquez Gomez. Ernesto Garcia Peña continues a tradition of Cubanidad in his work, painting muscular, bulging horses, revolutionary fighters and other symbols acquainted with that which is Cuban in the early 20th century. Peña’s work is seen as natural progression of a painterly tradition which can be traced back to the time of Cuban independence. Among the recognitions of this artist include 2007 Special Category of Consultant Professor of the Superior Institute of Art, Cuba, 2001 Diploma to Artistic Merit, Superior Institute of Art, C. Habana, 1994 Unique Mention of Drawing, Salon Abanico, C. Habana, 1985 Order Rubén Martínez Villena to the most outstanding artistic work of the year.
