Ernesto Rancaño (La Habana, 1968) Graduated from the Academy of Arts of San Alejandro, La Habana, Cuba. His works can be found in permanent collections in Panama, Mexico, Jamaica and Spain.
Rancaño’s work has been described as everything from post-medieval to new age, from subtly poetic to dramatic and candid. The truth of his art lies in the chord it strikes with each individual viewer, be it dramatic or subtle. His work seeks to capture the universality in art, whilst simultaneously working to explore his national identity, reflecting upon the state of visual arts in Cuba’s insular sphere as well as in a broader Latin American context. Above all Rancaño’s work is acknowledged as being a somewhat spiritual experience; a space in which one falls into absolute silence in front of the nude figures, the streaming lights and the dancing silhouettes.
Rancaño has been a member of the Union of Artists and Writers (UNEAC) since 1995 and is also part of the International Association of Artists (IAA). He has been awarded a Diploma of Artistic Merit by the Instituto Superior de Artes (ISA) in Havana and has also been a recipient of the the Djerassi Fellowship Award, San Francisco, California, USA
