Bernardo Navarro Tomas (born 1977 Havana, Cuba), is a self-taught artist born and raised in the Vedado section of Havana,Cuba. Bernardo grew up in a family of artists and was introduced as a young man to the work of Zaida del Rio,[1] Raul Martinez and Adelaida Herrera.[2] When he finished formal schooling he went to work in the studio of Adelaida Herrera who was an ex-member of (Grupo Antillano). It was during this period that he completed his first works, and began to develop his style and his portfolio. In 2004 he moved to NY where he further developed his portfolio and began to exhibit with other Cuban artists.

In his pop art works he steps gingerly with a visible political thread that accentuates his life story.

The writer Ricardo Alberto Perez wrote that Bernardo's work in the "City that multiplies' has the footprint of a journey that multiplies between the past and the present....and evolved under the influence of the Bauhaus, expressionism and "Readymade",[3] all mixed with a strong influence of all that is Cuban.

Bernardo's important shows are:

  • New York Meets Havana
  • Unweaving the Spectrum CONTRA ART GALLERY New York, NY
  • City Limits El Barrio's Artspace PS109
  • Citizens of the World : Cuba in Queens[4]

Bernardo's works can be found in the following Collections:

  • Center for Cuban Studies
  • Indiana University Art Museum
  • Latin Art Space
  • La Siempre Habana
