b. 1990. Havana, Cuba

Miguel Machado Suarez is a young Cuban artist who is considered by many to be the main rising star of the Cuban art scene. His paintings do a great job of concealing Suarez’s age as they perceive to be painted by a person who has a lot more experiences than this painter. When it comes to his style and themes, Miguel Machado Suarez creates pieces that are pleasing and vivid on first glance, appearing as if they belong in a children’s book of some kind – however, as the viewer starts to become aware of the painting as a whole, he or she quickly realizes that Suarez’s images depict something far more sinister.
