Fabian Peña

Born in Havana, 1976 and lives in Miami

Born in 1976 in Cuba and based in Miami, Fabian Peña reconstructs fragments of cockroach wings, crushed houseflies, hand-scripted text, and other materials rooted in animalia to inform man-made objects and environments, to explore life, death and the sublime. Peña’s synthesization of nature and popular culture endows the contemporaneity of a baseball, graffiti, or allusions to Modern sculpture with a cellular level of timelessness. Peña harkens to the Shakespearean interpretation of a corporeal “pound of flesh,” acknowledging the somatic price for locating beauty in the grotesque. His work has been featured in The New York Times and The Miami Herald.
