"Spanning over four decades, Agustín Gaínza has consummated a vibrant interpretation of the world around him. His body of work encompasses painting, drawing, printmaking and ceramics, and his unabashed use of color assumes a leading role in all of his endeavors. Memories of his native Cuba are intrinsically and harmoniously linked with a wicked sense of humor.
Gaínza’s art is structured with various series of works. The moment he feels a theme may become repetitive, he passes on to another, often infusing trace elements from the previous series in the new ones.
Gaínza’s notable series include: Harlequins, Guajiros, Rural, Interior, Contempt, Mulatas, Moninas, Mamboletas, Umbrellas, Matías Pérez and his inexhaustible City series.
Gaínza has been featured in more than 60 solo and group exhibitions in the United States and countries throughout Europe, Asia, Central and South America and the Caribbean, including his country of origin."
