Cortador de Caña (Sugar cane cutter)

Acrylic on canvas board 9" x 12". Something I had left aside for some time. These where our "Jibaro" sugar cane cutters during the 20's to 60's, then the sugar industry began to decline in the 70's. Puerto Rico no longer produces sugar cane.

About Juan A. Quiles

Born in Queens, NY, lived in Puerto Rico since 1972. I've been drawing and painting since I started school at five and have never stopped. I love drawing in pencil more than any other media. I paint in acrylic and pastel. I also do murals once in a while. I studied at the "Escuela de Bellas Artes" (School of Fine Arts) in Arecibo PR where I earned a certificate in acrylic painting. I also studied advanced drawing, sculpture, relief carving and relief printing. I enjoy all forms of art and try to practice my favorites as often as I can. I had a sign & graphics arts business 4 years ago, but due to an accident I had to close and retire. I recently took up stained glass as a new hobby and enjoying it very much.
