"Pretext" by the Cuban artist Yasiel Alvarez Borges. Standing at width "80 cm" by height "120 cm" it is a figurative painting made of oil painting on canvas.

"The thirst for knowledge motivates me every day and from my personal experience, I propose a vision of what I understand is happening. Somehow I appropriate surrealism as a formal reference, using it as a pretext to discuss issues related to the behavior of man in our society. Therefore I am interested in addressing social issues and within this, making reference to concerns and the uncertainty that characterizes the individual as a thinking being."

"I am driven by the thirst of knowledge, and our ever changing society. This is why my works serve as a dialogue with time itself, and the experience that is acquired or future one" says Borges on his interview with Oleos & Canvas.

About Yasiel Alvarez Borges

There are great books in the world and great worlds in books. This truth is well known by the young painter Yasiel Alvarez Borges, who for more than a decade has placed the book as the protagonist of his works, not only seen from its physical materiality, but also as a great well of wisdom. "I am motivated by the thirst for knowledge and our ever-changing society, that is why my work aims to dialogue with time and experience."Another topic of his work is the absence of the human being. “The non-physical presence of man is replaced by the book, an element capable of collecting all the accumulated experience. It also works for me to question situations and processes carried out by the human species ”.
