José Manuel Mesías: making the object significant and extraordinary

José Manuel Mesías is a Cuban artist who specialises in painting, drawing, video and installation. The latter being a medium for which he often focuses his practise on the object, its found status and its story. His work roots itself in both the past history and contemporary context of Cuba. It often looks back to the time of the Independence wars in Cuba in the late 1800s, a rare theme in contemporary Cuban art. His work reveals both personal and collective histories. It demonstrates the fundamental principles of the universe that can be manifested in the most insignificant objects and the most ordinary crafts.
