Biography - Ruben Manuel Beltrán Guerra
Beltran is a self taught artist, one who has overcome many obstacles. He has limited formal training but has been an avid observer.
As a child and adult he would spend hours looking at nature - on the beach, watching all the different colors of the sea and its life; on a train to Havana watching the changing landscape until his eyes ached; or at night, stargazing on a rooftop. Beltran’s goal is to capture nature on his canvas in his landscapes.
For Beltran, painting is a demonstration of all the love he feels for God, man, and nature. The sketch is like a newborn, then I nurture it raise it until it grows and becomes an adult, the finished work of art. It is this same attachment to his work that makes it so difficult for Beltran to let go of his paintings and sell them.
