Roger Toledo (1986) was born in Camagüey, Cuba. After he graduated from Vicentina de la Torre Art Academy in 2015, he majored in painting at the University for the Arts (ISA) in Havana. From 2011 until 2017, he served as a professor of Painting and Criticism at the Visual Art School of the University for the Arts. He currently lives and works between Havana and Mérida, México.
Despite its versatility, his work retains a strong coherence due to two elements that remain constant in his creations: the use of a Pattern (simple geometrical elements used to segment space) and Color.Toledo’s paintings explore the image and its structure, with recurrent references to the universal and Cuban pictorial tradition.
