Leonel Matheu's Bio

 

Leonel Matheu was born in Havana, Cuba in 1967, he resides in Miami since 1992, and in Los Angeles since 2012 . He is a possessor of a personal style that combines elements derived from his education and experience as a visual artist.

Carol Damian, Director of the Frost Art Museum described Leonel Matheu's work as ..."Popular imagery and compositions that resemble a puzzle interact to give birth to smart and sophisticated commentaries about the human condition. In flat and systematic dispositions of abstract and pictographic forms, Matheu builds his own urban landscapes in which strangers run and hide".

Marisol Martell from Art Nexus Magazine wrote that ..."the apparent simplicity of Leonel Matheu's proposal is surprising since it makes us face a subject that we no longer wait to hear about. He makes us conscious, for a moment, of those daily things around us with which we are so used to share our lives without even realizing it".

Matheu has shown his art in numerous solo and group exhibitions through these last 20 years. They had taken place within The United States, Japan, China, Korea, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Venezuela, Chile and Argentina. His work is part of important public collections such as The Lowe Art Museum in Coral Gables, The MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in Miami, The Frost Art Museum at Florida International University in Miami, The Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, The Mobile Museum of Art in Alabama, The Georgia Museum of Art at University of Georgia in Athens, The Art Museum of Radford University in Virginia and Museo Iberoamericano de Arte Contemporáneo (MIAC) in Spain.

During his career, the artist received various awards and recognitions such as Chivas Regal Order of Distinction for his artistic career in 2000, and The metal of Culture in Rotterdam, The Netherlands; in 2001 he was awarded with an honored mention by the Secretary of The State of Florida as recognizing his work and contribution to make Florida a State of the Arts; and SEETAL 2007, 5th Edition in the Category of Photography-Mixed Media Painting at Kunst Forum International of Switzerland.

Leonel Matheu's work is a philosophical analysis of a series of events as consequences of the human reality. These happen in a world where the artist transforms them into fables whose language is supported by the imagery. His graphic is applied in different mediums and interacts with the spectator to allow a free interpretation of his narrative.
