This award winner poster by Antonio Guerrero was chosen to represent Cosmic Connections Exhibition by Contemporary Art Projects USA at the American Largest College Miami Dade West Campus, Doral, Florida.

Antonio Guerrero is a contemporary Cuban American Artist. He was born in 1968 in Matanzas Cuba, under the Castro regime. Guerrero grew up in a household where artistic expression was appreciated and encouraged; although materials were not always available, his dreams and ideas were always abundant.

Antonio Guerrero sees his art as a mouthpiece that inspires change. Influenced by the works of painters Matisse, Dalí and Chagall as well as authors Dostoyevsky, Kafka, Cortazar ,Borges, and Faulkner, his art presents a distinct visual language.

Guerrero uses elements and influences as varied as ancient Egyptian art, imagery from the sumerian culture, tapestry from the middle Ages, avant-garde art, modern expressionism, as well as his own experiences to shape his unique personal voice.

Antonio Guerrero’s interdisciplinary work, which encompasses painting, sculpture, writing and photography is shaped by a wide array of interests including the philosophy of consciousness, Cuban culture and human cognition, which refers to the mental processes involved in establishing and shaping our understanding of reality. His work explores philosophical questions like the nature of existence, mind and body, knowledge, goodness and beauty. His interest in knowledge extends from the avant-garde arts and philosophy to history, literature, social sciences, public policy and economics. Of special interest are the forces driving social and cultural change such as globalization and the avant-garde artistic movements.
