Ariel Celestino Hernandez

Ariel Celestino Hernandez also known as “El Pintor De Las Curvas” was born in Marianao, La Habana Cuba in 1974 and migrated to this country in 1999. Celestino started his artwork at six years of age when he did a portrait of his teacher. When his teacher saw the portrait, she knew he would one day make this his career as he was naturally gifted.  He did his first art exposition in Cuba at the age of 17; since then, he has done many expositions in the United States, Europe, and Central America. He studied many techniques by reading art books filled with biographies and pictures of masters inspiring him to create his own unique style and his own master pieces. His art work is very personal in every way: the colors, the buildings, the streets, the plants, and the people are a reflection of urban civilizations with a touch of movement that define his art work.  His artwork can be compared to a universe of light and bright colors with movements. His style is different, colorful, and easily recognizable by its elegant curves with a well-defined personal seal. Celestino has been featured in several magazines and has appeared on numerous television programs. He has done many murals including a large mural for the Hotel Loews in Miami Beach, Florida. Celestino has donated many of his art works to charitable not for profit organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Amigos for Kids, and St. Jude Research among others.
