Visual artist Tomas Sanchez creates dreamlike paintings inspired by nature and meditation.
Born in 1948, Tomas Sanchez is a Cuban artist best known for a range of distinctive landscape paintings (including his majestic landfills). In addition to nature, his work is often associated with the experience of meditation.
In 1964 at the age of only 16, Tomas Sanchez moved to Havana to study painting at the San Alejandro National Academy of Fine Arts. Two years later, he transferred to the newly founded National School for the Arts (ENA), whose program of study was more contemporary. In 1971, he graduated from the ENA. In the same year, he won his first prize in Graphic Art from the National Young Artists’ Salon, earning him the first recognition of his career.
