OSCAR HERNANDEZ SORIANO (1944 – 2007)

Oscar Hernandez Soriano was born in Cuba 1944 where he spent his first years.
But at the age of 11 the family moved to Spain since his mother was Spanish.

He studied 5 years at the Academy of Art in Madrid and then moved to
Sweden where he continued his studies at Konstakademien (the Academy of Art) in Stockholm.

He settled down in Stockholm but spent a few months every year in Spain.

He participated in many individual and collective exhibitions in Sweden,
Spain and some other countries. He is also represented in many different places in Sweden.

Oscar Hernandez Soriano was an artist of the old school. An important part in his intensive creating process was the preparation of his canvases and often of his paints with different pigments.

He painted often with thick layers of paints, often in brilliant orange and yellow
cadmium and cobalt blue tones, which make the colors vibrate.

In Oscar Hernandez Soriano art production are the following recurring themes : woman/women, loving couples, the meeting between man and woman, the lonely man, groups of people.

Apart from figurative paintings Oscar Hernandez Soriano has painted landscapes from Spain and Sweden, especially from Stockholm, as well as still lifes.

There are artistic talents in his family : his brother Emilio is a well known theatre
director in Spain and his youngest sister toured around the world in a flamenco troupe before her marriage.

At his death in August 2007 Oscar Hernandez Soriano left behind a great number of paintings and drawings which cover his whole artistic production between 1960 and 2007.
