WILLIAMS CARMONA


Born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba in 1967, Williams Carmona studied at the University of Fine Arts in Havana. Like many of his fellow artists, Carmona left Cuba to explore the artistic freedom available outside his homeland. Since 1991, he has lived and painted in Puerto Rico. While his early works were large and expressionistic, his more mature works have evolved into a new style; one Carmona has labeled Tropical realism. In 1996 the artist was honored with a one-man exhibition in his adopted homeland at the Museo de las Americas in San Juan, Puerto Rico. That same year, Carmona was also invited to participate in the Latin American masters group exhibition, Latin ViewPoints, at the Nassau County Museum of Art, Long Island, New York.

If you happen to be in Los Angeles please stop by the Museum of Latin American Art, visit the Permanent Collection and see Carmona's work for yourself. His work is truly amazing!

Have a great day everyone!

    Very interesting paintings. Have tou ever heard of Frida Callo-the Mexican painter? I saw a PBS bio on her her paintings are truly amazing as well. Such heartache and sadness in them.
