The work of Pablo Soto Campoamor is currently on display in the Freight’s lobby gallery.
“I am the son of Cuban immigrants, the first of my family to be born in the US. Both of my parents are from Havana, but the family roots spread across the island east to Bayamo, south to Batabanó, and west to Artemisa. Miami is my hometown, and Havana my second home. Growing up at the dawn of Hip Hop, and straddling two worlds, negotiating competing identities, I lived between “La Saguecera” (South West Miami), Hialeah, and South Miami. Spending long periods of time with my family, and people in Cuba had a profound effect on my cultural identity. Art has always been a central part of my life. I come from an artistic family. Spirituality, storytelling, food, ritual, and music were woven through the fabric of my family. Sacred, and surreal memories are the landscape of my visual vocabulary. The themes, and symbols that emerge from this landscape, continually animate and inspire my art.”
