Pavel Moraguez Mok explains that in his latest works, the woman as the theme of his works has become the epicenter of his universe. This Cuban artist can be seen around the hotels and resorts of Cuba, selling his work to tourists. Many of the artists in Cuba do so in order to earn a living when gallery space is not available for them to exhibit their works.
He states that he is very sensitive to the beauty and sensuality of the face and figure of the female form. The treatment is to evoke a social content, to defend the existence of woman which is for him, the only beautiful and valuable thing that humanity will save after destroying the environment.
Technically, he favors the effect of the drawn image integrated into the whole picture.
Pavel is also a sculptor and this ability can be seen in his drawings and paintings. There is in them solidity in the volume and the modeling.
Moraguez was born in Holguin, in 1970. In 1985, he graduated from the School of Plastic Arts in Holguin specializing in drawing and sculpture. In 1989, he was sent to study in Moscow at the State Institute of Art.
His art work can be found in collections in private homes around the globe.
