    Loló Soldevilla

    Cuban • 1901 - 1971

    Born in Cuba in 1901, Lolo Soldevilla is considered a seminal figure in Concrete Cuban art. Soldevilla began painting in 1948, and in 1949 traveled to Paris where she encountered contemporary European avant-garde artistic practices — namely, abstraction. Upon her return to Cuba in 1956, Soldevilla and Pedro de Oraa founded Galeria Color-Luz, a gallery solely dedicated to the promotion of abstract art. A few years she later began exhibiting with the group Diez Pintores Concretos, which included artists such as Sandú Darié, Jose Mijares and Rafael Soriano. 



    Soldevilla's artistic practice encompasses painting, drawing and collage works. Similar to other Cuban Concretists, Soldevilla rejected the nationalist figurative work of the Vanguardistas and sought to employ a more international abstract vernacular.
