Artist from Cuba - Alicia Leal
(1957 - ) Born in the central region of Cuba
Alicia Leal lives in Havana with her husband, painter Juan Moreira. She graduated from the San Alejandro School of Fine Arts and quickly joined the ranks of young artists who came to prominence in the 1980's. She started painting seriously about 1985 when her daughter was born. Her flat perspective and detailed scenes have a freshness, whimsy and exuberance reminiscent of folk art. A darker tone emerges in her themes drawn from myth.
