BIO

Eulises Niebla Pérez, I was born on August 21, 1963 in a city of Cuba called Matanzas. In 1975 I decided to establish a permanent link with the Plastic Arts and I studied the pertinent studies to complete this type of education, finishing with graduation at the ISA, Higher Institute of Arts of Havana, in 1990. During this period I saw my curriculum grow both nationally and internationally, with some awards and mentions and a scholarship in 1992 to «Delfina foundation» in London.

During that time I was very active in my work, achieving very good interaction with the media and the London system. I am interested in closed gallery spaces and I also dabble in public and environmental art. I have works in Spain, England, Germany and others, where I was also able to share in events and symposiums with renowned figures of world art.

At that time I was fortunate to be invited to the project «Devoradores de energía», an itinerant and agglutinating space that involved the best of Cuban art and where I was fortunate enough to be widely disseminated around the world. In my mainly sculptural work, the use of materials such as metal, glass and bolts and tensors is evident. During my professional growth in Cuba I had the unconditional sympathy of being invited to a long trail of symposiums and international events, where in addition to sharing among colleagues, we had the incentive to leave a permanent environmental work.

In the way of expressing my motivation I found a way to drink in North American minimal art. In Ramírez Villamizar, who I was also able to meet personally, I found at a time in my life, a strong influence, Gelen Escobedo, Richard Serra and others also helped me to forge my discourse. In the last five years from the United States I have continued my work with a different morphology where the curved movement and visual lightness accuse the metal of being not very heavy. Over time I am proud to say that I have works in several private collections, most notably Falver and the Vienna Museum of Art.
