Ángel Acosta León

Ángel Acosta León (1930–1964) was a Cuban painter. His style owes much to surrealism, and expresses the pain he felt through much of his life. Animal, human and mechanical forms abound in his paintings, along with wheels, a reference to his lifelong fantasy of being a bus driver. His work has been compared to that of Wols.


León possibly committed suicide or possibly was murdered at the age of thirty-four.
