Statement

Jose Bedia (full name José Braulio Bedia Valdés) is a Cuban painter. He resolves the distance of millennia in spare line drawings rooted at once in an appreciation for comic art and an abiding belief in the shared characteristics of indigenous faiths. A priest of Palo Monte, a rural religion closely tied to nature, Bedia has studied with Lakota Indians, the Yoruba of West Africa and adherents of the pan-Caribbean Santería religion. From a personal cosmography born of his immersion in diverse cultures, Bedia’s drawings are populated by godlike animistic figures with extenuated limbs that reach out over great distances.

His work has been presented in several individual shows, such as '"Final del Centauro"',1989 , Castillo de la Real Fuerza, Havana, Cuba. In 1994 was presented"José Bedia: De donde vengo", in the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Also exhibiting at "InSite94: A Binational Exhibition of Installation and Site Specific Art". San Diego Train Station, San Diego, California.
