José Angel Vincench(Holguín, 1973)

José Ángel Vincench Barrera is a conceptual artist who, contrary to orthodox representatives of such a trend, has always preferred to intentionally "contaminate" his artistic material with sociological, religious and political contents and purposes which, to make matters worse, are marked by the "stigma" of being local. In his works there are no abstract or generic concepts, much less formalist plays stemming from brief verbal enunciations which do not allow us to arrive at any conclusion, other than obvious or simplistic ones.
