About the Author
Marcos Miguel Abreu was born in 1960, in the City of Havana. He was trained in abstract painting techniques by his father Miguel Alexis Abreu, who was formally trained by the San Alejandro Art School, the foremost Art Center in Cuba. During his early years, Marcos suffered many hardships along with his family due to food rationing, forced labor, and much more, while witnessing the strength of the human spirit as good people found ways to overcome very difficult circumstances. His experience along with all the stories told to him by his family and friends influences his writing and painting style as he works to convey some of those experiences into words, colors, and shapes. As an artist, his favorite medium is acrylics, and his body of work naturally gravitates towards abstracts using vibrant color themes. A large portion of his work has been donated to charitable organizations, while some have been sold into private collections.
