Cuban/Italian American painter, Amy Bravo is interested in the shared language of culture and family, be it a found, queer family, or blood relatives. Her work is an attempt to understand and reflect on the existence of a queer Cuban person who has neither a found family, nor many living blood relatives of Cuban descent left. Challenged with the complications of Cuban politics regarding homosexuality, Bravo’s large-scale paintings seek to create an impossible utopia in the vague outline of Cuba, with the impossibility being the most crucial element. This utopian desire hinges on the question of what it means to love someone or somewhere you do not always agree with.

New York-born artist whose paintings of everyday decorative arts, kitchen vessels and midcentury glassworks are deceivingly simple. Each painting is, in fact, rife with nostalgic nods, systems of geometry, latent symbolism and a mind-bending ability to capture reflections and refractions. Collectively, his works bring a calculating sophistication to the seemingly mundane. He has exhibited extensively in New York, Los Angeles, London, Milan and Oslo.Watch video to learn more
