Guido Llinas was born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba.
Self-taught, he appeared in the 1950s as a non-figurative and abstract
painter strongly influenced by the rhythms of Afro-Cuban music.
Martinez, the expert on the artist, records Llinas’
travels in the United States as well as his exposure to abstract
expressionism in New York City as well as Llinas’ incorporation of many
of its elements in his own painting. Martinez also notes Llinas’ leading
position in the Cuban Los Once Group in the first
half of the 1950s.
In 1963, Llinas moved to Paris where he perfected his
printmaking as well as his style of action painting often using black
and white pigmen
