Bernardo Navarro Tomas

 

Bernardo Navarro Tomás (Havana, Cuba 1977) is a self-taught artist who expresses himself through different materials and means. He currently lives and paints in Brooklyn, New York. In his early paintings, which earned him recognition in several museums and institutions of the city of New York, Navarro Tomás created works that focused on his life experience. In a deviation from the social issue, his current works have experimented with abstraction and collage when wanting to capture the energy of his current surrounding urban environment.
