Biography

Kelvin López utilizes landscape as his means of expression, however his advances of the theme are varying. He approaches the same idea form different angles using a diversity of artistic styles and therefore creating differing series. In "Tormentas" he assimilates the impacts of hurricanes on Cuba, whereas the series "Achievements" deals with the early days of the revolution in Havana in the 1960s via stamped paraphrases and slogans.
