Rolando Matos Camejo (Rolo)
Rolando Matos Camejo (Rolo) (b. 1966) is a native of Baracoa. Rolo studied under Orlando Piedra and began his career working on mural painting. He paints in the figurative tradition focusing almost exclusively on peasant faces and scenes of peasants in their daily work activities.
His love of the rural countryside is apparent in the feeling expressed in his works.
His paintings have been exhibited throughout the eastern part of Cuba and are in private collections in England, Italy, France, Spain and the U.S.A. In 2002, Rolo won first prize at the Salón Eliseo Osorio Gallery in Baracoa for the painting “El Machetero”.
