Victor Payares Cuban, b. 1985

Victor Payares’ work explores ways of simulating recollection and visual discourse through the dissemination of painting and sculpture. His work is often brightly coloured, picturing a surrealistic world built up by parts from a story that has been broken into different pieces. As if to portray a memory or a dream, using many layers of paint, architecture, observation, mapping and cartography are reappearing references in his work. Victor Payares (b. 1985 in Havana, Cuba, lives in Berlin) was a participant of the Berlin Program for Artists, Berlin from 2019 – 2021. Previously, he studied at the Royal College of Art, London, UK, in 2015 – 2017 in the Master's program and at Miami International University of Art & Design, Miami, USA, from 2003 – 2007 in their BFA program.
