Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1973. A self-taught painter, sculptor and draftsman. Rigoberto PelŠezís interest in landscape painting is clearly linked to a strong preference for rural life. In his works, the artist expresses a new romantic vision of the Cuban countryside, imbuing the vegetation and sky with a sense of movement and an atmosphere of romance. PelŠez, who practices open-air painting, concentrates in detailing the tonalities of light and joyous exuberance of the Cuban landscape. ďI do not like urban life. The rural scene is closely linked to my spiritual world. In it, I see beyond the present and the goals I wish to pursueĒ, admits the artist who also manifests that his creations are in many ways connected to his love for musicÖ ďBasically, all my work is influenced by classical music. Thus, in my landscapes you can listen to the pleasing rhythms of natureís gifts.Ē.
