Internationally acclaimed painter and ceramist Orestes Gaulhiac is recognized for his diversity in style and technique. Influenced by his modest roots growing up in the surrounding countryside of Santiago de Cuba, Gaulhiac's works reflect an appreciation for the simple,  natural elements of life as well as various "states of spirit" he believes we all experience.
 
Gaulhiac delves into the complexities of modern-day life by bestowing human qualities on fish, birds and animals. Folklore comes alive in recognizable, yet redefined renderings of rural scenes populated with animals, plants, fruit, dolls and circus acts. His playful universe celebrates the grandeur of animals and nature altogether.        
 
Gaulhiac's borderless universe also incorporates kings, queens, deities, virgins, mythological heroes and clowns.  The artist describes his use of iconic roles such as royals and servants to reflect emotional experiences internal to all people. He calls these "moments of the soul." The artist expands on this idea, "At times we feel like kings, at others times, fools, and from time to time, clowns."
