Yoan Capote is a Cuban artist whose work is rich in symbolism and representation of humanity and its feelings. He uses everyday objects to give them new meanings and perspectives and to create visual statements of what surrounds him.

Capote's work is based on sculptural work, paintings, drawings, performance photos and public space art. He uses elements like shoes, stairs, door frames, bricks and wires to produce pieces that through texture, color and abstract shapes allude to social and culture implications, making his work incredibly rich and complex.

Yoan Capote has been involved with the artistic world since an early age, which explains his extensive portfolio of work. He has also exhibited his pieces in places like the United States, Switzerland, Cuba and Italy.
