Alejandro Mendoza 
b. 1967 Cuba, resides in USA

Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1967 Alejando Mendoza was recognized for his work at an early age when it was included in the permanent collection of Museo Nacional de Bellas Arte and Centro Wifredo Lam, organizers of today’s Havana Biennial. After completing his formal education, Mendoza moved to Mexico where he spent the next 15 years developing an important body of work, which led to it being included at prestigious institutions such as the acclaimed Museo del Chopo, U.N.A.M, and Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil. Mendoza moved to the United States, residing primarily along the East Coast between Miami and Philadelphia. His work has been included in prestigious collections and shows, such as The Farber Collection and The Noyes Museum in New Jersey. Since 2005, Mendoza has made his home in Miami, where he has achieved honors and won the Knight Foundation Arts Partnership Grant in 2008 from The John & James L. Knight Foundation. He has become a very important supporter of and contributor to the Magic City’s Art in Public Spaces effort, bringing the monumental sculptures known as “The Giants in the City” to Miami.

Pablo Cano 

b. 1961 Cuba, resides in USA

Since childhood, marionettes have fascinated Pablo. At the age of ten, he was mounting elaborate plays for his family featuring puppets constructed of household bric-a-brac. His primary work today continues to center around the marionettes that he fashions from found objects, and the performance pieces he composes to showcase these protagonists. Cano reveals, “I create a dream world where inanimate objects come to life – springing from my imagination in the Surrealist tradition. But my work is founded on Dada ideals. The Dadaists used chance, spontaneity, and childlike innocence in order to create their statement. Their intention, as is mine, was to break with tradition and painting technique and to return to the elemental basics of art; to start from scratch; to allow the process of imagination to unfold and begin anew each time I create.”
