Pedro Pablo Oliva

Pedro Pablo Oliva (b. Pinar del Río, Cuba, 1949)

Pedro Pablo Oliva studied art at the Escuela Provincial de Artes Plásticas in Pinar del Río from 1961 to 1964 and specialized in painting at the Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havana, graduating in 1970. His whimsical paintings often depict children and animals, about which Oliva says, "I want to use the images of childhood to alleviate the bleakness of the complex problems confronting adulthood." Over the last three decades, Oliva has exhibited his paintings internationally and has received numerous awards. Currently, the artist lives and works in Pinar del Río.
