the Ivan Reyas collection
artist bio

“My greatest influences come from the musical rhythm of drums, as well as the sound and motion I find in graffiti and propaganda.”

Ivan Reyes was born in Havana, Cuba in June of 1971. Like most of the country at that time, Ivan grew up in a family with scarce economic resources. His most acute childhood memories are of the constant, outspoken graffiti on the city walls around him, exclaiming messages in harsh opposition to the widespread political propaganda of the government. This is where his interest in free, public, and creative expression.

Working on large-scale canvases, Ivan applies collage techniques and spontaneous drawing to rich hues of paint. His compositions are unified by a single source out of which experimental lines and forms emerge. His artistic abstractions convey both sides of his upbringing: the energy and anger of graffiti, as well as the fractured propaganda of the authority. Behind everything else, however, there lie vast, empty and contemplative spaces that suggest an imagination and freedom not yet explored. Ivan’s work is received with great enthusiasm across the United States. It is exhibited and collected on a regular basis.
