Gina Pellón

Gina Pellón (December 26, 1926 – March 27, 2014) was a Cuban painter who lived in France.[1] She was known for her abstract expressive paintings in strong colours, usually depicting women.[2] She also wrote collections of poems.


Born in Cumanayagua, Las Villas she graduated from the Academy of San Alejandro in 1954, and taught at the Velado Polytechnic Institute, until 1957.[3] In 1959, she studied in France, and overstayed her visa,[4] fleeing from the Cuban dictatorship of Fidel Castro, and in 1960 she made her first solo exhibition in Luzern, Switzerland. Since then she has made exhibitions in various countries.

She lived in Paris.[5]
