Born in 1962 in La Havana, Jorge Mayet is a Cuban expatriate artist living and working in Mallorca, Spain. He says, “I recreate with wires, paper, and other elements my own landscapes which at the same time form part of my culture, my roots, and the identity of my town”
Devoided of political connotation, Mayet’s work is a reminiscence of his native Cuba as well as a personal metaphor about exile and liberation. After graduating from San Alejandro’s National School of Fine Arts in Cuba, Jorge Mayet started his early career with painting which gradually gave way to his current sculptures and installations. Today, allegorical landscapes are created from his studio which are embodiments of his life experiences.
