Miami-based contemporary visual artist Leticia Sánchez Toledo was born in 1985 and is of Cuban and Spanish descent. She is well-known for her personal depictions of women and scenes of them that are influenced by her passion in movies, where color and light play key roles in evoking a painting’s aura or atmosphere.

She spent her childhood learning about the world through the big screen at the nearby movie theater where she lived in a little town. Today Leticia offers a personal view of her wishes and concerns while also examining social, cultural, and ethnic issues that are present in the lives of women today. She does this as a mental challenge and by using frames to communicate her own point of view in the social space.
She comes from a family of artists, where she had the opportunity to grow up in an environment conducive to delving into her preferred medium: painting.

Leticia Sánchez Toledo (1985, Cabaiguán, Cuba) is a young Cuban artist who currently lives and works in the city of Miami. She graduated in 2013 from the Higher Institute of Design (ISDI) in Havana, Cuba. 

Leticia is best known for her personal representations of women, who tell her stories through somewhat melancholic atmospheres influenced by her love of cinema. Her childhood was spent exploring the world through the big screen of the cinema in her town. For her, the relationship between color and light plays a fundamental role in her works when it comes to evoking the unique aura of each painting.

The artist brings her personal vision of her desires and concerns while examining social, cultural, and ethnic issues that shape the lives of contemporary women.
