Luis Enrique Camejo Vento
(b. Pinar del Río, 1971)

"I depict life passing too fast trying to  catch  the uncatchable, the artificial light, the  images that  stay in our minds as ghosts of an indifferent and strange reality.  I use photography as  iconographical reference that falls upon the code of realism but I place my paintings closer to the abstract than the narrative."

By artist Luis E. Camejo 

Luis Enrique Camejo is a 1996 graduate of the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. His most recent series of works portrays rainy nights in Havana, saturated in color and blurred by the motion of the night.  A moment in time

Frequently nocturnal, these strangely under-populated urban scenes are like snapshots of the mind. Only certain elements—a tree, car, light fixture, or bike—are concretely captured, as if by a passing glance. Others fade into the drips and blurs of the paint. A professor of painting at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana since 1996, Camejo has exhibited his work internationally.
