Darwin Estacio Martinez uses a universally understood visual language to convey unfinished stories as in still images taken from a movie. Darwin takes moments of an embrace, a handshake or other human interactions and zooms in, fragmenting the figures into mysterious compositions in bold color.

Martinez received his Masters degree in 2011 from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Cuba. Darwin is currently a professor at La Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes in San Alejandro, Cuba. He has been exhibiting his work since 1997, in solo and group exhibits throughout Cuba, Europe, and Boston, MA. Martinez’s work has been shown at Casa Museo, Alejandro de Humboltd in Havana, Cuba and at Staedtischen Museum in Traunstein, Germany.
