Ana Gladys paints brilliantly colored canvasses full of sensuality and expressionist beauty with a unique use of cubism.
In a prolific career her art is one-of-a-kind and in her most recent series unusual in Cuban art through unusual incongruities in her inventive use of instruments in the paintings resulting in a joyful mix of contrasts. Apparent influences are the Sosabravo's strident shades and the thick lines typical of Amelia Peláez.
During the 1980's she studied at the Cuban National Arte School, alumni with great artists, Nelson Domínguez, Ernesto García Peña, Eduardo Roca Salazar (Choco) and Ángel Ramírez.
Her works are in collections around the world notably in private U.S. collections (Miami, California and New York), Spain, Portugal, Italy, Singapore, Chile, Ecuador and Costa Rica.
Her studio in Vedado is open to the public daily from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm and can be purchased on eBay at cubanartbeat.com.
