Víctor Lope Arte Contemporáneo opens exhibition of works by Gustavo Díaz Sosa

BARCELONA.- Víctor Lope Arte Contemporáneo will present an exhibition of the artist Gustavo Díaz Sosa.

The hierarchies, the classes and the abuse of all those who govern are some of the issues that Gustavo Díaz Sosa represents in his artworks, the bureaucratic purgatory in which the protagonists of his big canvases wander. Faceless people, only coded by their clothing and their wandering destiny, where walking away from the group leads to getting lost, but also to seeking shelter in its nucleus.

“If anyone has eyes, let him see!” is the theme that the artist proclaims to the wind, and to which works of the series that have been part of his discourse refer to, like “Of Bureaucrats and Godfathers” (“De Burócratas y Padrinos), “Epics of a New Millennium” (“Epopeyas de un Nuevo Milenio”) or “Hell, according to Dante” (“El infierno, según cuenta Dante”). A continuity better explained and enriched by his personal experiences, the necessity of transmitting everything he’s learned from life.

“If anyone has eyes, let him see!” is a call to action, to grow up and regain the lost virtue of individuals in the hands of uncontrolled consumerism and the craving for possession. It is also a reflection on faith and its manifestations, spiritual and architectonical.

Gustavo Díaz Sosa is from Sagua la Grande (Cuba), but has developed an important part of his artistic production in Spain, country where he has been living for the past ten years. His artwork, charactarized by composition and defining perspective, but also for its atmosphere and treatment of light and shadows, has developed throughout his artistic series, all of them with the same themes, and also present at “If anyone has eyes, let him see!”.

Since the begining of his career, the artist has been awarded with the Título de Oro de la Academia Nacional de Bellas Artes San Alejandro (Cuba, 2002) and has participated in different art fairs, such as Art Karlsruhe or Istanbul Contemporary. Gustavo has also been a part of group exhibitions in cities all over the world like London, Barcelona and La Habana. In terms of solo exhibitions, he’s worked with galleries from different countries, some of them the United States, Italy and Spain.
