Juan Andrés Milanés Benito was born in Isla de La Juventud, Cuba in 1978. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Escuela de arte Wifredo Lam, Isla de La Juventud, Cuba in 1996. Milanés Benito pursued an exchange year at the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art in Trondheim in 2007, and received his Masters in Fine Art at the Art Academy in Oslo in 2009. He lives and works in Oslo. Milanes Benito’s work is characterized by his social, political, and environmental commentary. He also uses the technique of precise casting, a process that forms part of the narrative of his work. The act of copying and imitation refers directly to the human behaviour we pursue to be part of our social environment. His is represented in Oslo by Galleri Riis and has exhibit around the world for over a decade.
