Luis Enrique Camejo (b. Pinar del Río, 1971)
Luis Enrique Camejo graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana in 1996. His most recent body of work consists of cityscapes of Havana awash in rich, saturated hues. Frequently nocturnal, these strangely under-populated urban scenes are like snapshots of the mind. Only certain elements—a tree, car, light fixture, or bike—are concretely captured, as if by a passing glance. Others fade into the drips and blurs of the paint. “I depict life passing too fast, trying to catch the uncatchable, the artificial light, the images that stay in our minds as ghosts of an indifferent and strange reality,” writes Camejo. A Professor of painting at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana since 1996, Camejo has exhibited his work internationally.
