About the Event

Cuban-born Mariano Herrera is a self-taught artist who emigrated to the United States in the 1960s. In his youth, Mariano Herrera was influenced by several notable artists, including Salvador Dali, Wilfredo Lam, and Max Ernst. These artists are known for their contributions to surrealism and abstraction and shaped Herrera's artistic style and techniques. Today his artwork is inspired by his memories of the Isla de Pinos, his childhood home. He recalls the intense blue skies, the aquamarine colors of the sea, and the lush green colors of the island. These memories have translated into the brilliant colors and biomorphic shapes on his canvases. Mariano Herrera's art is deeply rooted in his personal experiences, his Cuban heritage, and the artistic influences he has encountered throughout his life. His art is a joyful reflection of his memories and the beauty of the natural world, as seen through the lens of his unique abstract perspective. Paintings by Mariano Herrera are on display at the Buenaventura Lakes Library in Kissimmee  from January 5 throughFebruary 29.
