Baruj Salinas

Baruj Salinas (born in La Habana, Cuba in 1938) is an architect, painter and sculptor who lives and works in the United States since 1959. He later moved to Barcelona, where he studied alongside top artists such as Joan Miró and Antoni Tápies.

 

Although architecture influenced his early works, he gradually moved towards a purely abstract expression, in which colour is more important than form. Baruj Salinas’s artwork can be found in important collections all over the world such as the Joan Miro Foundation - Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona; the National Museum of Catalonia, Barcelona - Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya; the National Institute of Fine Arts, Mexico D.F - Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura; the Beit Uri Museum, Israel; NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, Florida; the Fine Arts Museum, Budapest; the Art Institute of Chicago and the Phoenix Museum of Art, Arizona.
