Ariel Celestino Hernandez (b.1974)

Havana, Cuba

Artist Ariel Celestino Hernandez, also known as “El Pintor De Las Curvas” migrated from Cuba to the United States in 1999. Artist Ariel Celestino Hernandez started his artwork at six years of age, when he first did a portrait of his teacher. When his teacher saw the portrait, she knew he would one day, make this his career, as he was naturally gifted. He had his first art exposition in Cuba at the age of 17, since then, he has done several expositions in the United States, Europe, and Central America. 


Artist Ariel Celestino Hernandez studied many techniques by reading art books filled with biographies and pictures of masters inspiring him to create his own unique style and his own master pieces. His art work is very personal in every way, the colors, the buildings, the streets, the plants and the people, are a reflection of urban civilizations, with a touch of movement that define his art work. His art work can be compared to a universe of light and bright colors with movements. His style is different, colorful, and easily recognizable, by its elegant curves with a well-defined personal seal. Artist Ariel Celestino Hernandez has been featured in several magazines and has appeared on numerous television programs. He has done many murals including a large mural for the Hotel Loews in Miami Beach, Florida. Artist Ariel Celestino Hernandez has donated many of his art works to charitable not for profit organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Amigos for Kids and St. Jude Research among others.


The work of artist Ariel Celestino Hernández, is based on elements and figures that are mixed in a compact form, which come together to form a monolithic block, giving rise to a harmonic set of a unique structural beauty. Defining his work is somewhat complicated, his style is different, simple, direct, colorful, easily recognizable by his elegant curves and with a very well defined personal seal. His work stands out for the contained expression, forms a center that turns it into an axis around which revolves the life of a city, adorned with various elements, that adhere to their fabrics through their masterly hand. He's work is surrealist, since it is easy to find a city navigating between clouds, or a lectern obstructing the public way, he's work has a same conductive lines for all its subjects, by what we are, before a very well defined personal seal, with the color, the expression and the texture of a true painting.
