Title: Darian Mederos

Subtitle: A glimpse into the Soul


In his "Obscura Series," Mederos presents a unique blend of photorealistic abstraction. Employing bubble wrap to both reflect light and distort the image beneath, his creations require distance to be fully appreciated, dissolving into bold strokes and nuanced shades when viewed up close. This series invites viewers to engage with the deeper aspects of human identity.


Darian Rodriguez Mederos
b. 1992, Santa Clara, Cuba

Darian Mederos, a Cuban prodigy, has garnered acclaim for his focus on the human face, capturing the vast spectrum of human emotion. His works are a testament to the shared experiences that transcend borders, race, and culture, portraying the universality of expressions.
Mederos's artistic path started at the Leopoldo Romañach School of Art in Santa Clara, Cuba, followed by advanced studies at the renowned Academia Nacional de Bellas Artes San Alejandro in Havana. His journey from Cuba to Miami at the age of 22 marked a significant cultural and technological shift, described as a rapid transition that brought him decades into the future.

Mederos's artistry lies in his ability to deconstruct and reconstruct visual narratives, playing with the tension between hyperrealism and abstraction. He experiments with diverse mediums, including coin-based works, showcasing his versatile approach to art.

His talent has been recognized in various group exhibitions and prestigious art fairs. Mederos's solo shows include "God is a Woman" at the HOFA Gallery (House of Fine Art) in London in 2020. His participation in group shows has spanned themes like "Flower Power," "Myth-Making," and "Realism, Surrealism, and Representation." His works have also graced the stages of significant art fairs, including the LA Art Show, London Art Fair, Art Miami, and CONTEXT Art Miami.

Today, Darian Mederos resides and creates in Miami, Florida, where he continues to push the envelope in artistic representation and contributes significantly to the contemporary art landscape.
