Bernardo Milhet Heredia (El Niño)
Bernardo Milhet Heredia (El Niño) was born in Baracoa in 1980. He is a member of the Archeological Society of Baracoa and the Asociación de Artesanos de Cuba (the Cuban Handicraft Association).
He works in both stone and wood and worked with Andrey Guiillarte on the creeation of a life-size, stone Taíno community for the recently opened Archeological Museum of Baracoa.
El Niño’s works characterize the Taino people with sharp angular movements as though captured in timeless motion. He is constantly experimenting with new expressions for his art.
His works are in private collections in Spain, Italy, Switzerland and the U.S.
