TOMAS OLIVA Jr.


Artist Tomás Oliva by Saint Andrew's Doors, Aug. 1999


"Cuban-born artist Tomas Oliva, first set forth the goal of mastering realism, and master it he does, not to keep it as a permanent style, but as a step toward new dimensions in drawing and specially in sculpture. Realism is also a way for him to grasp surrounding elements, to search for other forms of expression. He wants to blend the infinite and finite nature of man..."

                                 Ralph Rewes  1994

"Casi 60 años después del desafío y la ruptura que, en su aspiración de realizar una abstracción sin mensaje, encabezó su padre con los integrantes del grupo Los Once, el joven Tomás Oliva, al otro lado del país, reivindica para la escultura cubana, desde el realismo de The Way, la posibilidad figurativa, el rigor y la belleza. Y lo hace con una gran obra, sus puertas de Saint Andrew."
