Born in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba 1966
Since early childhood, Radamés Potrony has been inspired by nature, during his early studies with art teachers, such as Lago, Armando Rodríguez and Tomas Sanchez, all three teachers are masters of the Cuban plastic arts, he has demonstrated that he possesses a great talent in painting landscapes of Cuba, all three teachers left a great influence in his style and were also his first mentors.
Potrony’s landscape paintings have been quoted among world collectors, as one of the most remarkable young Cuban landscape artist in Florida. Potrony's work has always been inspired by the work of his personal friend, renowned Cuban landscape artist Tomas Sanchez.
Even though he was taught by great masters in the arts, Potrony has developed his own unique and distinctive style.
Another renowned Cuban artist José Juaquín Tejeda, was also a great inspiration for Potrony, their work is influenced by French pre-impressionist artist Camile Pizarro, where light and color, play an important element in their landscape paintings.

THE WORK OF RADAMES POTRONY PICTORIAL
Radames Potrony, of impressive texture in his expression, offers us the literal reality, it gives us the essential color, the wise condensation, able to give us in a gesture, a look, all the classic intensity of the projected landscape. This is the extreme case of virtuosity ad asun poetae. We fill the space when the artist opens the doors to all the evasions. There are different trends in all the contours, with the paths of feeling and creation and even that of sensitized intelligence, they are radically referred to. It is a position hitherto manifested, a change of quality and degree in the purpose of granting the artist a privileged and esoteric franchise.
His pictorial language in the Visual Arts, serves to say the whole spectacle that we face to defend its field, to claim its authenticity. His entrancing exercise will communicate, with force, with the deepest new notes, strokes and brushstrokes for a definition of a Familiar Gobelin of Expressionism and much more tempting in the color of his Landscape.
Actually, the artist is interested in being updated, if he is a type of vanguard, although he considers himself a man open to the new, to the unusual. He is a painter who takes his time, his personality and his angels and those are his characteristics and those who prefer to continue with them.
