Born in Cuba in 1964, Alejandro Aguilera received his education at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba, and the School of Art in Holguin, Cuba. He creates sculptures, paintings, and drawings. Although his work has become increasingly abstract in recent years, it retains strong references to his recent memories of Cuba. Such references include banderas (small flags that typically decorate the streets and businesses on the island) as well as motifs related to the ocean and to the landscape. Aguilera combines these elements with the swirling imagery of what he descirbes as "so-called primitive cultures." Aguilera has exhibited in the United States and abroad, and his work is included in the public collections of the Hartsfield International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia; CEMEX in Monterrey, Mexico; the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Monterrey, Mexico; and the National Museum Palace of Fine Arts in Havana, Cuba.
