Agustin Gainza

Telling the story of color with madness and delight .

A Cuban American artist whose hands speak an universal language that materializes with a convergence of color and wonder. His art awakes the shocking sensuality and refined grace found within the simple and mundane. Each color will reveal a new secret and each painting will tell a story only you know.
