Lorenzo Padilla, peintre d’origine cubaine, promène ses pinceaux depuis quarante ans place du Tertre. L’homme se partage entre son atelier parisien, installé dans son appartement, où il réalise des œuvres abstraites, et le Carré des artistes de la Butte. Là, une semaine sur deux, il installe son chevalet, où il réalise des œuvres « plus montmartroises, […]

“One can trace the paths from Brauner to Alan Davie, from Hunderwasser to Padilla, from Colin Self to sculptors of the Royal College of Art, and we must follow them with new eyes because these works are no longer based on academic criteria of beauty or figuration, but on the awakening of consciousness, on lyricism, […]

Jean-Pierre Laurens (Les cahiers de la peinture)

This Cuban professor of painting and drawing, born in 1931, has a strong personality as a colorist. His deep, sensitive oils and pastels have struck me in the way he’s handled colors as if they were a musical palette in acatchy rhythm that spreads like a symphony, arising out works that vary in style, some figurative, others strippedto abstraction. I want to say about him, evoking Braque’s expression, that “The Art and man are one.” Jean-Pierre Laurens (Les cahiers de […]

“Lorenzo Padilla doesn’t detour from the path with his brush, he seizes the canvas, like pioneers surging forward thorugh the undergrowth with a machete. His work bleeds, blue, red, green, yellow. Long furrow-scars that are as much shouting, affirmations of sacrifications, sacrifices, as they are driven by an internal song propeling footsteps on the path […]

I know Padilla from his paintings, which belong to the passionate turbulence of Latin America, paintings that are abstract as well as figiruative. All are concerned with the exalted gesture of man, the knowledge of his grandest gestures, and they embrace the poignant loneliness of a grand continent. A painter emerging from there is one […]

“Padilla. This young artist bears the evidence of an undeniable character, drawn from his country and its climate. His drawing may be Expressionist. But his colors, the characteristics of his sensual, violent, bold, powerful lyricism make him close as well to the current generation of Mexican artists. ” Guy Dornand (Libération)

Padilla, Cuban painter: 
Three reasons to be at his side when he comes to Paris: I must confess my fondness for painters, because painting is essentially a carnal adventure, like theater. 
For another, it’s feeling. It’s by a common sensuality that our fraternity is established. 
And a third: to me, Cuba means friend. Since my […]

“If we were to classify the paintings of Cuban artist Padilla, he’d be placed among Expressionists. But that term is sufficiently vague that it doesn’t really define anything. It describes his way of presenting in his works realistic content violently expressed. Vivid shapes arise from his thick brushtrokes. Whether painting a figure or a flower, […]
