Edel Bordón

Edel  Bordón


Born on February 27, 1953, Bordón has dedicated his life to the study of Fine Art. As a graduate of both the National School of Art and the Superior Institute of Art, Bordón has had thirteen years of academic study.

He began teaching in 1976 at the Provincial School of Art in Santa Clara, Cuba. He went on to teach at the Provincial School of Fine Art in Havana between 1979- 1987. Bordón has since spent the past twenty years serving as a professor of Painting at the prestigious San Alejandro School of Art in Havana.

Experimental in technique, Bordón's work evokes an exercise of visual intelligence. He posits a reflective mood and discreet humor. His work intimates the complexity of the modern Cuban worldview with its disparate influences of the Caribbean soul, Western culture and Christianity, the Oriental imprint, as well as Spanish and African ancestry. Eroticism, seduction, and existential frustrations are often expressed.

Bordón is a member of the National League of Writers and Artists of Cuba (UNEAC). He has had over twenty individual exhibitions in various countries including Cuba, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, and Switzerland. He has also participated in scores of collective exhibitions in Cuba and abroad.
