I am Santos - An Exhibition - 10th December 2018 - 31st January 2019

When: 10th January 2018 - 31st January 2019

Where: The Incubator Creative Hub

Here's a great story: we met Michel in the Incubator the other day whilst he was exploring the Village. As it transpires he is an exceptionally talented artist. We have the pleasure of hosting this micro pop up exhibition of Michel's extraordinary works until February. Come and check them out - truly outstanding works - all for sale.

"My name is Michel Mariano Morales Santos, born in Havana, Cuba, on 13th August 1972. At an early age my curiosity towards art was awaken, which mi parents noticed rapidly and therefore stimulated with love for painting. 

Thanks to Armando Posse a talented Cuban painter and engraver and a great friend above all I received my first paint brush, temperas and tips. I am a self-taught artist, my family wanted me to be trained as a painter but I was determined to study at the university and therefore I graduated in Interior Design from the ISDI (Superior Institute of Industrial Design of Havana) in 1996. Through my paint brush I let sexual fantasies, hidden feelings and emotions flow. My art is dark, dramatic, passionate and controversial, full of strength and sensuality. But foremost very personal."
