About Us

Founded in 2022 by Marcos Mena Cruz, Oleos & Canvas is a dynamic online gallery dedicated to promoting and commercializing Cuban Art. Based in Toronto, we are an independent art project working with a diverse array of contemporary artists, both established and emerging. Our focus predominantly lies in painting and visual art, and we leverage our expertise in fine art to educate the world about the essence of Contemporary Cuban Art.

Our team has established strong relationships with private collectors, museums, and corporations globally. Our client base is diverse, catering to both seasoned collectors and those new to art collecting. Being rooted in Toronto, we ensure our pop-up exhibits throughout the city are always accessible to the public, inviting a broad audience to engage with our art.

In our roster, we feature a range of artists, from National Award winners like Zaida del Rio and Alfredo Sosabravo to undiscovered talents like Nuriesky Pichardo. These artists represent the finest offerings of Cuba's art scene. Through Oleos & Canvas, we strive to dismantle economic barriers, granting these artists access to new markets. This, in turn, allows collectors the opportunity to explore and acquire some of the most remarkable art Cuba has to offer.

Additionally, we provide corporate services in event management. We have collaborated with companies such as Amazon and Pernod Ricard in planning and executing art-based activations, showcasing our versatility and ability to bring art into various corporate settings.
