Renato Martinez

I was born in the City of Camaguey in the Republic of Cuba. I have been painting since I was six years old. In Havana I studied drawing, painting, ceramics, papier mache, and other subjects for three years. In 1980 I left Cuba and came to the United States. Since that time I have lived in San Francisco.
I paint to make people happy. I want my paintings to make people recall the scent of flowers and the soft enchantment of a simple poem. I paint because colors fascinate me as well as the different ranges of hues that I am able to combine in all their immeasurable splendor. I paint to afford visual pleasure, somewhat gentle, dreamlike and above all peaceful. My paintings are full of optimism, of soundness and peace of mind, and of enigmas that act as symbols intended to arouse one's curiosity to probe more deeply into life's meanings. All in all, I paint landscapes that have lived in my subconscious for much time; tropical butterflies and exotic birds that perch or fly free in a splendid sky; and divine beings like terrestrial gods with immense eyes that offer sensuality and that help the humans smile.
