Rodolfo Peraza, born in Cuba, 1980, a year associated with the birth of "new Cuban art," belongs to the generation of emerging artists concerned with the freedom of artistic expression. Interested in the questions of isolation and self-identity, his works address the connections of technology, geography and the individual. Using the internet, social media, and animation, Peraza creates a body of work that explores the moral, spiritual, and social modes of conduct governing society. The artist lives in Miami and Havana.
