Celaya’s works, not usually shown in group exhibitions, are often shown as “multi-disciplinary” collections at museums, galleries or even unconventional venues like churches and philharmonics. His work has been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of Marican Art and, lest it seem New York-centric, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the Museum der bildenden Kunste in Leipzig.
Celaya is more than a fine artist. He also has written criticism, two books of poetry and edited other books including poems by Charles Baudelaire.
Celaya was, as noted, born in Cuba but immigrated to Spain and then moved to Puerto Rico where he apprenticed to a painter. He currently works in Miami. Read more on this fascinating artist at his website (linked above).
