‘Carnivorous Plants’ By Andy Llanes Bultó

Cuban Artist Andy Llanes Bultó is

Depicting the male human figure flows in and out of favor in Western art history. Cuban artist Andy Llanes Bultó, who now lives in Louisville, is keeping the tradition alive with his depictions of male nudes in action. His influences include pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge and painter Francis Bacon. His preference for using gold leaf adds a unusual element to his paintings. “Gold is a material of seduction and one that I use to elicit the viewer’s desire to possess,” he said. If you’re interested in seeing more of Bultó’s work, his show “Pillowfight” is at the 21c Museum Hotel in Lexington through Oct. 2023. —Jo Anne Triplett
