Roberto Gonzalez Fernandez is a Cuban artist born in 1972 who paints absurd stylized motifs of adventurous narratives that often feature little people interacting with everyday house hold objects. The artist's attention to detail, muted pallet and imaginative scenes, often painted with a background fading into space, underscores the sense of the surreal.
"Vibora Palma (from the Series, "Cada loco con su Vuelo")" (2006) is part Fernandez's works that underscore the individuality amongst the masses, as translated in the series title, "To each his own Flight." This work evokes a sense of social interactions constrained within the common activities that occur throughout the day. Fernandez's little people are tightly packed within a classic blue Cadillac Convertable against a textured monochromatic background, and little palm trees project on both sides, and circus gymnasts are included in the background, transforming the motif into a surreal scene. These exchanges between friends are here enclosed in the society's expectations and traditions. Roberto Gonzalez Fernandez has been recognized throughout the Latin American art market, with multiple exhibitions nationally and abroad.
