Rafael Soriano


Rafael Soriano (b. 1920, Cuba, d. 2015, United States) studied at the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts, Havana, and was a member of the avant-garde group Diez Pintores Concretos. He immigrated to the United States in 1962, and subsequently transitioned from producing works of geometric abstraction to creating paintings that contain mysterious, glowing, biomorphic forms. Over the past few years, Soriano’s work has appeared in multiple individual and group exhibitions, including the following: “Rafael Soriano: The Artist as Mystic,” The McMullen Museum (Boston College), Boston (2017); “Adiós Utopia: Dreams and Deceptions in Cuban Art since 1950,” Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH), Houston (2017); and “Concrete Cuba,” David Zwirner Gallery, New York City (2016).
