Victor Huerta Batista
Victor Huerta Batista is a Cuban artist who combines insightful political commentary and brilliant imagery, with a masterful technique and old world palette. Huerta practices what the Cubans call “lo real maravilloso” (the marvelous real), a trend in 20th century Cuban art toward the creation of magical realities: real experience meshed with fantastical imaginings, personal mythology shaded by political critique, precise rendering amidst strange artificiality and psychologically charged atmospheres.
Huerta has exhibited throughout Cuba, Spain and the United States. His work appears in private and museum collections around the world. This marks his first exhibition in La Jolla.
