Park West Gallery Unveils Newest Artist: Orlando Quevedo

Sunset Orlando Quevedo Park West Gallery

“Sunset” (2017), Orlando Quevedo

Enter the magical world of Orlando Quevedo where fantasy and reality seamlessly blend together with masterpieces from art history.

As the leading proponent of “Magical Realism,” Quevedo’s art is exhibited in over 30 major galleries across the United States and Europe, and most recently, Park West Gallery. Inspired by the Baroque era and Surrealism, Quevedo blends architectural interiors with elements of illusion and antiquity, Quevedo creates magical settings begging to be explored.

Park West Gallery proudly offers Quevedo’s art as limited-edition works on metal. By using a cutting-edge technique known as dye sublimation, Quevedo’s imagery is bonded to metal at a molecular level, amplifying his luminous art to new heights.

Happiness Orlando Quevedo Park West Gallery

“Happiness” (2017), Orlando Quevedo

Born January 1, 1970 in Holguín, Cuba, Quevedo studied at the Vocational School of Arts. He later attended the Professional School of Fine Arts in his hometown and rounded out his formal education at the Instituto Superior de Art (University of Arts) in Havana, Cuba in 1993, graduating in the same year.

Quevedo’s father immigrated to Philadelphia 13 years prior to Quevedo graduating from the University of Arts. Quevedo followed in his father’s footsteps, immigrating to Philadelphia in 1993. The artist worked as a professor of art appreciation at La Salle University in Philadelphia, and used his talents to paint several large murals in the downtown area.

Quevedo’s immigration to Philadelphia impacted his artwork on multiple levels. The artist applies vibrant and lively hues to his canvases to signify the happy reunion with his father. Quevedo’s exposure to the artwork at the Philadelphia Museum of Art inspired him to pay tribute to iconic artists that came before him in his own oeuvre.

“Lady in Red” (2017), Orlando Quevedo

Hanging in the fantastical interiors of Quevedo’s settings are detailed reproductions of memorable works from master artists such as Marc Chagall, Edward Degas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh.

Quevedo pays homage to Rembrandt van Rijn, Peter Paul Rubens, and Diego Velazquez by combining their emotive use of light, drama, and movement with his unique style. Quevedo experiments with subject matter, form, and sequence, featuring multiple focal points, exploring the female figure, and employing symbolism.
