Onay Rosquet lives and works in Havana, Cuba, where he was born in 1987. A self-taught artist, he has moved from works with fine arts influence to a personal style of hyperrealism.
His works are part of various collections in the United States, Colombia, Italy, Germany, Mexico, Norway, Spain, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Cuba; and have been published in various specialized magazines and websites in Cuba and abroad.
This artist’s pieces have inspired Cuban art critic Nelson Herrera Ysla to write: “Amazing and delicate hands are those of this painter for a recreation of reality that seemed forgotten and dead, since they breathe life into them. Painting, Onay wants to tell us, is one step beyond photography in its struggle to reflect the reality of dear objects.”
