THOMAS ECHAVERRIA (B.1972, Cuba)
Echaverria’s paintings express emotions and places he rarely got the chance to experience.
Living in poverty forced Echaverria to begin working at six years old. The lack of infrastructure and public amenities, like parks and playgrounds, was a negative factor that positively contributed to Echaverria’s artistic talents. “I realized I had a talent for drawing what I saw. This is why my early teenage paintings reflect a darker Cuba, one in which many people did not have the ability to see.”
However, Echaverria’s painting style would take a dramatic turn the moment he stared at his firstborn’s blue eyes. “My girl inspires me every day. When I look at a child, I see Innocence, Curiosity, Extraordinary Imagination, and the inelastic ability to accept concepts that we adults obediently consent. A child’s ability to look at something as simple as a tire and recreate an imaginary world around it captivates me and that is what I try to emphasize in my paintings.”
