Adislen Reyes Pino draws in simple small-scale outlines, almost childlike, seemingly in conflict with the images of the anxiety provoking situations she is portraying. However, the contrast is all the more provocative. Pino’s work is inspired by her generation’s angst regarding Cuba’s uncertain future.

Adislen Reyes Pino was born in Havana in 1984. She graduated from the Higher Institute of Arts and the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts, where she is now working as a professor. Pino’s work has been exhibited in several solo exhibitions in Havana, Cuba. Her work has been featured in the Taipei Fine Art Museum in China, The Art Museum of the Americas in Washington DC and the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design in Costa Rica. In addition, Pino has participated in many themed group exhibitions internationally, dealing with issues of the Cuban avant-garde, gender identity and book art. In the United States, Pino has shown in California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Florida and New York.
