Carlos Luna (Cuban, b.1969) grew up in a small rural town in Cuba. In 1991, he immigrated to Mexico, and then moved to the United States in 2002, where he currently lives and works. Luna is known for his highly decorative and powerfully shaded paintings, sculptures, and ceramics full of symbolism intrinsic to his roots in rural Cuba. Luna has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Mexico, Cuba, and abroad. His work can be seen in museums and public collections, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, LA; the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, FL; the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, FL; El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY; the Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, CA; and the Palm Springs Art Museum, Palm Springs, CA; among others.
