Artist Angel Mena Terry is originally from Havana, Cuba. Angel is a self-taught painter and photographer. He holds engineering and Master of Science degrees in Cartography from the NIIGAiK Institute of Novosibirsk in Siberia, Russia where he spent five years before returning to Cuba. He immigrated to Canada in 1995, bringing with him tropical colours which he introduces to otherwise peaceful Canadian scenes. He began expressing himself artistically through photography, by which he sharpened his eye for composition and colour. He was awarded the 2006 Greater Fredericton Tourism Association Award for his artistic photography. Photography remains a part of his life, but painting has become his main passion. Angel’s distinctive style is characterized by whimsical shapes, large and fast brushstrokes, and vibrant bold colours that are rarely blended. Whether it's a bold accent piece in a neutrally decorated room or another splash of colour in a vibrant room, his enchanting works of art always please. Angel settled in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada in 1998. In 2013, he opened his home studio where his most recent pieces can be viewed.
