About The Artist - Julio Bordas
Julio Bordas, agricultural engineer, born in Cuba. His pastoral surroundings, contact with nature, artistic curiosity and the writings of Winston Churchill inspired him to venture into painting. As a young man, he was a Cuban track and field champion and a medalist in the Central American Olympic games. After running many important agricultural operations in Cuba, he came to the United States and began a successful career as an executive of a multinational agro-chemical company. He traveled extensively for business to Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and South America. He currently resides in Miami with his wife, Rosa, their children and grandchildren.
His works have been exhibited in several US cities, Europe, Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Latin America. He uses the interaction of spaces, forms, colors and textures in free flowing movement, creating a painting that invites the viewer to form their own emotional interpretations and feelings. His abstracts and contemporary works reflect the influence, guidance and advice of Cuban Master Baruj Salinas.
