Yoan Capote

Stress (particular), 2010.

Yoan Capote is a Cuban sculptor who was born in 1977 in Pinar del Río.
Yoan Capote lives and works in Havana where he studied arts at the Superior Institute of Art from 1991 to 1995. Even if he first specialized in painting, he finally decided to improve his sculpture skills, considering the latter as a way of developing three-dimensional and multi-sensory possibilities.

Capote often merges human organs with inanimate objects, rearranges the human body and reinvents the purpose of everyday life: the sculpture Nostalgia, which features an ordinary suitcase unzipped to reveal a wall of bricks, can be seen as a metaphor for nomadism and its limits, the wall of bricks standing for our own impediments we all carry with us wherever we go.
Currently, Yoan Capote designs everyday life furniture, using materials who usually belong to traditional art.
