Juan Miguel Pozo | CV

Juan Miguel Pozo born in 1967 in Holguin, Cuba. He lives and works, since 1995, in Berlin. The artist, figurative painter, studied between Cuba, Madrid and Berlin. He presents his work for over 25 years. His works are in national and international collections like Falkenberg collection and collection Ludwig.

EDUCATION :
Art School for Painting and Drawing, Isla de Pinos, Cuba Art School of Universidad de Havanna, Kuba Academia de Arte San Alejandro, Habana,Cuba Kunstakademie Dusseldorf with Prof. K. Klapheck,Germany

Born in Cuba and currently residing in Berlin, the painter Juan Miguel Pozo pursuits a pictorial narrative in his work that distinctly rejects the discursive, instead seeking the symbolic significance of personal and collective memory. Lost mythologies intermingle with the legends of large cities. Alongside a tangible enthusiasm for the historical and anecdotal on Berlin‘s streets and the facades of its buildings, the fragile, sun drenched beauty of Havana also comes through in his formal compositions.
