Carlos Manuel was born with a painting brush in his hand! His Art has always been inspired by the landscapes of Pinar del Rio, Eastern province of Cuba.

The miracle of Carlos Manuel is that he never attended the School of Art; he started painting by observing his surroundings. The beautiful landscapes caught his eye and he has been dedicating 15 years of his career to this particular technique. Today he’s a “Maestro” for a lot of young Cuban students.

His treasure and talent comes from his brushes. Carlos Manuel makes his own brushes with his spouses’ hair! A thick, strong but very soft hair that enables him to show every detail of every leaf that he finds in the unique Cuban countryside.

The Artist of the Mountains as he likes to be called is very faithful to his native region but also to his inner world of emotions and dreams.
