Arte de Cubanos.
José Luis Hernández Castillo, Kllo.
Kllo, returns again caught in the web of the classical painters, to present us his new work. His characters escape the confines of their paintings to burst in our eyes in challenging new shades and forms.
This sample of his work allows us to appreciate the mixture of the Baroque or maybe the Renaissance with contemporary "cubanía". It invites us to a suggestive reflection by using elements that are part of our day to day surroundings but with an added touch of color and light.
The use of the spatula and of glaze color ("veladuras") give the synthesis of his brushstrokes a life of their own, placing in evidence the wealth of the textures and forms at the basis of his expressive power.
