Baruj Salinas was born in Havana in 1938. He graduated from the University of Ohio with an architectural degree and left Cuba permanently in 1959. Salinas settled in Miami and later moved to Barcelona where he studied alongside artists Joan Miro and Antoni Tapies. Architecture informed his early work, but gradually he moved toward a purely abstract expression. His work resembles paintings of space, where colour is more important than form and itself becomes a principal theme. There are traces, also, of Jewish traditions, but having been born in Cuba has made its impact. For him Cuba is the tropics and sugarcane, it is also the sun and the light. He will never cease to be Cuban. Salina's paintings can be seen in important collections all over the world such as the Joan Miro Foundation, Barcelona; the National Museum of Catalonia, Barcelona; the National Institute of Fine Arts, Mexico D.F; the Beit Uri Museum, Israel; the Fort Lauderdale Museum of the Arts, Florida; the Fine Arts Museum, Budapest; the Art Institute of Chicago and the Phoenix Museum of Art, Arizona.
