In the oeuvre of this Cuban American artist, the fine line between art, philosophy, literature and religion is blurred, almost nonexistent. The complexity of his works will be on view this February at Andersson/Sandström Gallery in Umeå, Sweden.

Artist Enrique Martínez Celaya incorporates multiple media to express his vision of art and life: painting, sculpture, photography or writing. These disciplines are intertwined in particular contexts or environments, in which the line that separates art, philosophy, literature and religion almost seems to disappear. From February 2 to March 7, the complexity of his oeuvre will be displayed at Andersson/Sandström Gallery in Umeå, Sweden, in the exhibition titled A Wasted Journey, A Half-Finished Blaze.
