ROGER TOLEDO

BIOGRAPHY

Roger was born in Camagüey, Cuba, 1986 and graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte, (ISA) in Havana, Cuba and from 2011 until 2017, he served as a professor of Painting and Criticism there.

Roger is a searcher and a researcher, an innovator of technique and a student of color. He is a formal minimalist owing as much to Seurat as he does to Albers. His contemporary landscapes vibrate with a subdued ambience generated from a mathematical approach to color pairing and composition. For many of his series, he creates a proprietary coded system based on color theory studies to produce his own color maps, breaking the painting down into an advanced paint-by numbers grid. He will often build up layers of texture with acrylic medium pressed through metal screens. At times the sculpted depths read like the braille of a new genre that might be considered Neo-Pointillism.

He has taken part in several artistic residencies, academic exchanges, exhibitions and he has received awards and recognitions for his work. His work is included in private collections in Europe, Latin America and the United States.

Roger currently lives and works in Havana, Cuba.
