Miami artist Sergio Payares was born in Havana, Cuba, 1962.
He studied at National School of Art (ENA), and at the Instituto
Superior de Arte (ISA). He perfected his training at the Rene
Porto Carrero Serigraph workshop. In 1993 he travels to Venezuela
where he resided for a short time, then moved to the states in 1994
where he since resides and works.
His work evokes the solitary reflections of the human condition.
Graphite markings, minimal lines,abstract motifs, words and shapes
appear to emerge into a world of play. Airy spaces form Zen voids.
Disembodied heads hover into empty spaces combined with natures
predicaments symbolized by leaf or flower forms.
"With signs to guide the way and the brush to bring it to reality, it is also
a passage to his very soul". Dr.Carol Damian, Director & Curator, The Frost
