Carlos Sablon born in Cuba and now lives and works in Paris France, he has a MA degree from Master educational science ISP Blas Roca Calderio, Manzanillo, Cuba and a BA from the Cultural center, Havana, Cuba. The artist Bruno Altmayer at the Grand Prix Léopold Sédar Senghor des Arts 2015 at the Cénacle Européen des Arts & des Lettres, praised him. In addition, Sablon is part of a famous group of artists “Libellule” which is very credible reference.
Carlos Sablon was influenced by the Florentine and Flemish schools, and is reassuring at a time when an art movement is ingeniously trying to make us take it seriously, but it is a diversion of manufactured products and other sterile insipidities devaluing the very idea of art.
Sablon has a remarkable technical and studio practice, it is sufficient to observe his draping, the aesthetic beauty of his characters immersed in a mystical or esoteric universe where the symbol is king. His work is a perpetual questioning of the origin of life, of its future and each of his works reveals a poetry for humanity. A symbolist vision in its syncretic form. Mix of cultures, close link between legends and reality, without ruling out the very idea of shamanism.
