Welcome to this special Artist Journey from the Disconnected Experiences Garden of Cuba. In my work, painting and digital practices converge. My painting is indebted to the great masters of painting who have had an impact on visual memory and collective culture. In this sense, social networks are a repository in which the visual culture of our time is poured out in real-time. Understanding the functioning of their algorithms, the use of hashtags and search engines is part of my research process. From the conjunction between technologies and painting emerge pieces that, although they have a pictorial result, are closely related to the multiple forms of digital representation between zeros and ones.
