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.
