Lolò Soldevilla

A main player in Cuba’s ‘Geometric Revolution’. A lover of Geometric composition, Lolò Soldvilla (1901–1971) studied in Paris, like many artists of her generation. The artist worked in various mediums including sculpture, bas-reliefs and paper. She often experimented with diverse sculptural mediums including plaster, stone and bronze—in addition to painting. She was founder of Cuba’s ‘Galeria de Arte Color-Luz’, a short-lived but fundamental venue for the exhibition of ‘Concrete Art’ in the late 1950s and early 1960s. A member of a ‘The Concrete Ten’ a group of experimental artists in Havana who sought to revolutionize Cuban art in their era, Soldevilla is widely recognized in Cuba for her unique, albeit small body of works. After the Cuban Revolution, the artist began to pursue additional interests including editing, teaching and toy design. Soldevilla’s Workers on Lunar Craters was restored by AWA and exhibited in 2016.
