Baruj Salinas (b. 1938, Havana, Cuba) began as an architect, leaving Cuba permanently in 1959 to earn his degree in architecture in the United States. Salinas settled in Miami and later moved to Barcelona where he studied alongside artists Joan Miró and Antoni Tapies. Architecture informed the artist's early work, but he gradually moved toward a purely Abstract Expressionist style.

In Salina's works, color become the principal theme, taking precedence over form. His works are inherently Cuban, reflecting his upbringing and nostalgia for Cuba - the tropics and sugarcane, the sun and the light of his native country. Salina's paintings can be seen in important collections all over the world such as the Joan Miró Foundation, Barcelona; the National Museum of Catalonia, Barcelona; the National Institute of Fine Arts, Mexico D.F; the Beit Uri Museum, Israel; the Fort Lauderdale Museum of the Arts, Florida; the Fine Arts Museum, Budapest; the Art Institute of Chicago; and the Phoenix Museum of Art, Arizona.
