Néstor Arenas graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte, Havana, in 1990.
The artist’s work features a personal iconography, an amalgamation born of a life lived in Cuba and abroad. Arenas conjures up a conversation on reality with the viewer through the visual representation of landscapes. “My work is a discourse on landscapes where I’ve lived. Each new landscape represents a different reality. I layer images of the past with the present, thereby creating the future.” - Néstor Arenas.
Arenas’ work has been shown in solo exhibitions and group shows throughout the U.S., Cuba, Spain and China. His work is part of several important private and corporate collections including: Forrest Capital, The Mosquera Collection, Jorge Reynardus Collection, Leigh University, and Universidad de Valencia, among others.
Néstor Arenas currently lives and works in Miami, Florida.
