ABOUT

Enrique Zaldivar is a Cuban painter and draftsman. He is a graduate of the Professional Academy of Fine Arts El Alba in Holguin, Cuba and currently lives in New Jersey. To date, he has done several solo and group shows. His work appears in several private collections, institutions and corporations throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Peru, Italy, France and Spain.

Enrique's art is characterized by a uniquely inquisitive look at the world that surrounds him, as well as a drive to recreate and show its wide range of situations. Acrylic, watercolor, drawing, collage, art print and photography are the mediums Enrique embraces without preference. His work exhibits intense color with a conscious use of complementary colors to create harmony and balance. The vibrant colors with a few mixtures become a way to illuminate the canvas.

Enrique has also published several books. Infinite Line, Pen and Ink Sketch Collection and Acrylic Landscapes, are his most recent publications.
