Gabriel Romero Perez was born in Mayari, Holguin, in 1970. He has no formal training, but has participated in numerous exhibitions, both collective and personal, throughout Cuba. He is presently living in Switzerland.
"One can only see thorugh the eyes of the heart."
With these words Gabriel expresses his love of brevity, simplicity and line. He masterfully transforms the linear with metamorphic artistry, and breathes into his work a visceral and organic life that is almost magical in its effect. He is a visionary talent, nurtured and informed by his Gallic roots.
When Gabriel was young he frequently used his fingers in place of brushes, and the wall of his grandfather's house as his canvas. Even today he still sometiems paints straight from the tube. was
