Aug 22 – Sept 27
Opening Reception Aug 22, 2015
Chosen for BridgeMakerARTS inaugural show, Nelson E. Enríquez is a multidisciplinary artist primarily focused in painting, photography, video, and mixed media.
Born in Havana, Cuba, his work is both social and sometimes biographical, exploring themes of immigration, travel, frontiers, consumerism and material scarcity both on and off the island of Cuba.
Enríquez is displaying a selection of his paintings and video that explores his journey as an immigrant. His work is an extrapolation of the representational storytelling format. Beautiful and transcendent he blends guttural brushstrokes and representative compositions creating a filtered dimension that is vibrant and resonant.
Enríquez has exhibited widely in Cuba, Germany, and the U.S. in both solo and group exhibitions. He has received international awards from “Europa Abierta” and the Cuban National Festival of Ephemeral Sculpture. He currently lives in the San Francisco bay area.
