Pedro Vizcaíno was born in Cuba in 1966, where he studied at the Instituto Superior de Arte and the Escuela Provincial de Artes Plásticas “San Alejandro,” in Havana. In the words of Ricardo Pau-Llosa, “Cuban painter Pedro Vizcaíno focuses on that jittery zone of energy and appetite that becomes briefly tangible when beings or things come together to mate, devour or otherwise alter each other…[Vizcaíno’s] primary theme is the way in which action becomes part of an image as opposed to the more common reverse approach—using an image to depict some kind of action…Vizcaíno captures the image at the instant in which it belongs to all its possible domains—conception, dream, the musing of the innocent, the denunciation of the cognizant, sketch, polished art work, idea. [His works] are the dive bombers sent by childhood to eradicate illusions about sex, power, and art.” Pedro Vizcaíno has shown extensively in the United States and abroad, and his works can be found in the following public collections: the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Havana, Cuba; Ninart Cultural Center, Mexico City, Mexico; The Lowe Art Museum at University of Miami, Miami, Florida; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, Florida; DACRA, Miami Beach, Florida; Miami-Dade College Frances Wolfson Gallery, Miami, Florida; Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, California; and Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, among others.
