Raúl Cordero is a contemporary artist born in 1971 in Havana, Cuba who currently lives and works in Mexico City. He studied fine arts at the San Alejandro Academy and design at ISDI in his hometown and then continued his studies at the Graphic Media Development Center and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in the Netherlands. Cordero focuses his work in recent years on the new paths of Painting. Through recurring motifs he transforms and revisits, he defends his own universe through his work using computers and print media to "deconstruct" images that will eventually become traditional oil paintings. For this he takes his deep knowledge of the Western tradition of painting as a frame of reference, which links with the constant pictorial process that is based on contemporary technological advances. So he uses this technology to celebrate the grandiloquence of the most important and historically innovative medium of the history of art that is ultimately: painting.
His work has been in prestigious public collections all over the world, including the National Museum of Modern Art Center Pompidou in Paris, France, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Los Angeles County (LACMA), the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) The Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego and the Fort Lauderdale Art Museum in the United States of America, the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana, Cuba, the Stedelijk Museum for Actuele Kunst (SMAK) in Ghent, Belgium , The Atlantic Center for Modern Art and the Extremadura and Iberoamerican Museum of Contemporary Art (MEIAC) in Spain, among many others.
It is represented by Mai 36 Galerie in Zurich, Switzerland.
