Quisbel Lezcano Blanco

Born July 22, 1973 in San Luis, a small village in the Province of Pinar Del Rio Cuba.

At the age of 8, Blanco entered his first provincial art competition and won first prize. He was inspired by the Great Masters of Landscape art in Cuba, including = Domingo Ramos, Tiburcio Lorenzo, Chaltan San Carta, and his mentor, Thomas Sanchez. 

In 1984, Blanco was selected to further his studies at Raúl Sánchez vocational school of art where he studied drawing and painting at the secondary level. In 1987, he continued studying at Carlos Hidalgo School of plastic arts in Pinar del Río, Cuba. After graduating in 1990, he moved to Havana to further his studies at San Alejandro National School of Fine Arts. 

What makes Quisbel’s paintings unique is the technique he uses. He utilizes three primary colors, Red, Blue and Yellow. With that he mixes and starts creating other combinations to create a magical effect, so detailed and real. From his imagination he creates waterfalls, mountains, and rivers, capturing the beauty and essence of nature.

His works have been included in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the United States, Spain, Colombia, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Panama, Brazil, France, England, Italy, Canada, Malaysia, Lebanon, Cuba, Dominic Republic and Turkey. His paintings are included in private, public, and corporate collections. 

In 2011, he immigrated to the United States where he lives and works in Cape Coral, Florida.
