Painter, Cuban – American, Born 1965
Heriberto Mora was born in Havana, Cuba. He graduated from the San Alejandro National Academy of Fine Arts in Havana, made his way to Spain and in 1993 arrived in Florida.
The central theme of his moving studies is the human being, its ongoing spiritual quest and its interaction with the environment. His paintings are done exclusively in oil and reflect the tension between the spiritual and material work, between visible and invisible reality.
Over the last seventeen years Mora has had over twenty solo gallery exhibitions as well as dozens of group shows throughout the United States, Spain, Panama, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. His work is featured in The Lowe Art Museum and the Frost Art Museum in Miami, the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, the Museo Berardo in Lisbon, the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame and the Nassau County Museum of Art in New York.
Mora’s works appear in private collections in Madrid, Paris, New York, Bogota, Miami, Washington D.C., Havana, Caracas, Buenos Aires, Monterrey and San Juan. He has been featured in auctions at Sotheby’s, Christie’s, the Miami Museum of Art and New York’s Contemporary Cuban Art Fair. Three of his works were used in a Hollywood film produced by Quentin Tarantino and his oils have appeared as the covers for twelve different books.
He is currently Artist in Residence at the RAICES Hispanic Heritage Cultural Art Center in Miami.
The Kelley Roy Gallery is pleased to represent Mr. Mora with a large collection of his work in our Miami Gallery.
