Carlos Quintana, painting life stories

The Cuban artist is a slave to his art, but he considers his captivity to be a sweet one and feels lucky to exhibit his work in the Vatican and both the Venice and Havana Biennial this May.
“I will never tell anyone what to think about my work; I paint so that others can think for themselves,” Quintana emphasises.
The artist believes that “with fine arts, it’s an indulgent slavery, as one feels the impulse to paint constantly, every mood, every emotion.”
