About /

Rodolfo Peraza born in Cuba, 1980, a year closely associated with the birth of “new Cuban art,” belongs to the generation of young artists that has inherited a legacy of the hard-fought freedom of individual artistic expression. While questions of isolation, loneliness, and self-identity persist, his work traverses the confines of geographic and personal borders through technology. Using the internet, social media, and animation, Peraza creates a body of work that explores the moral, spiritual, and social modes of conduct governing society.

(long version)

Rodolfo Peraza is a Cuban-born multimedia artist who works between Cuba and the US. His work focuses on public spaces, both virtual and physical, as well as DataVis of matters related to the Internet culture and the footprint it leaves in society.

Peraza is the founder of Fanguito Estudio in Havana (2009). In 20013, he launched the VRLab for the development of browser-based VR technology. The VRLab is devoted to both explore and promote the intersections between data, art, and the internet. Peraza also created MUD Foundation (Miami, 2016) to advance the intersections between art and digital technologies by implementing artistic and educational programs.​

Peraza holds a master’s degree in Visual Arts from The University of Arts of Cuba (Instituto Superior de Arte). His work has been exhibited internationally at events such as SIGGRAPH, Los Angeles California; the Pérez Art Museum, Miami, Florida; the Wifredo Lam Center for Contemporary Art, Havana, Cuba; the XII and XIII Havana Biennial; Künstlerhaus, Vienna; the Jumex Collection, Mexico City, among others. His work has also been included in the AGO Museum, Toronto, Canada, and the JUMEX permanent collections. Among other recognitions, his project Pilgram: Naked Link 2.0, received the Cannonball’s WaveMaker Grant.
