Noel Suarez

Noel is the living embodiment of passion and talent required by all great artists, which is reflected in his ever-evolving work. He is recognized as one of a small number of artists whom Miami’s ascendancy to the world cultural stage is reflected in the lifetime of his career. His style is an amalgam of structure and dreams, reality and mythology, the sensual
and the divine. Collectively, the tapestry of his work creates an artistic uniqueness that is characteristic of all great artists..

Cuban-born Noel was raised in the environment of a theatrical family and started his ballet training at the Escuela Provincial de Ballet de la Habana at age 5. He also study drawing and painting at Havana’s Academy of San Alejandro. Noel’s professional dancing career includes the renowned Alberto Alonso’s in Cuba with whom he toured throughout Europe and Canada. Prior to the Alonso’s’ he danced with Havana’s Opera Ballet. Noel arrived in the U.S. in 1981 after an eight-month engagement as Principal Dancer and Teacher with Costa Rica’s Compañia Nacional de Danza. In the US he danced with Ballet Concerto, Dance Miami, Boston Ballet II and New England Dinosaur Dance Company. While dancing he was also given the opportunity to design sets and costumes for the companies he danced with. Due to a knee injury Noel retired from dancing in 1986 and pursued a career as an Artist. Some of his commission for private and corporate collections
include; murals for the Ritz Plaza Hotel in Miami Beach, Grove Isle Hotel in Coconut Grove, for which he also created the fountain at its entrance. He also created the murals for San Diego’s Paradise Point Hotel.

Argentinian author Alicia Borinsky selected two of Noel’s paintings for her book jackets. He was also commissioned to create a portrait of the late Eartha Kitt, who had become a collector and mentor.

Noel served on the City of Miami Beach Fine Arts Board for five years. In his theatrical works include DIFFA’s 1993 production of “Acts of Hope” as Artistic Director while also creating the event’s commemorative poster. DIFFA invited Noel again to stage DIFFA’s Production Collection Rouge for its Miami premier.

University of Miami commissioned Noel to create sets, costumes and lighting design for the World Premier of the National Ballet of Cuba Prima Ballerina Rosario Suarez, for her ballet “Cecilia Valdez.”

Absolut Vodka commissioned Noel to create the commemorative poster for the 1989 Absolut Models for Boston to benefit the Homeless. Later on, Absolut again chose Noel to create one of the umbrellas for the “DIFFA’s Pink Umbrellas Project” and then again for the DIFFA Dallas Jacket Collection. In his personal fight against AIDS, Noel created a stable of paintings to benefit this very personal cause. “We Shall Overcome” to benefit the Boston AIDS Action Committee for their ARTcetera 88 auction, New York’s AIDS Relief Fund for New York’s “Beauty & Beyond‘98” to benefit Beauty Cares. For South Florida’s largest AIDS organization Care Resource, Noel was the featured Artist for its Miami White Party creating the iconic “Sueno Blanco” and again “Universal Love” for Care Resource’s 20th anniversary. Noel was also selected to create the painting for their Miami’s AIDS Walk 2000 Poster.

He was also chosen to create the Commemorative painting for First Night Miami Beach 2000 Millennium Celebration. As a result of all his paintings created to benefit AIDS, he was asked to create the panel representing Miami on the National AIDS Quilt Display. His works has generated an amazing amount of funds for AIDS Organizations Nationwide. The City of Miami Beach selected Noel to design five Flamingos for the Art in Public Places Flamingo Project. He also collaborated with fellow artist Romero Britto creating five large very unique paintings, all in private collections.

Noel has received national recognition with profiles and features in numerous magazines, newspapers, television and films. The European Library of Artists in Barcelona selected him for their 2007-2008-2009 editions of “100 Contemporary Artists of the World”, and also invited him to participate in the prestigious International Exhibit at the Carrousel of The Louvre Museum. He is also featured in the first edition of the book “100 Artists of the Male Image” published by Schiffer Publishing, as well as “The World’s Greatest Erotic Art of Today-Volume 4” published by ES Publishing. Another great collaboration created with Mr. Uberto Gucci/Gucci family (“La Colaborazione”) premiered first in Florence and then in Miami Beach during Art Basel. CNN Español commissioned Noel to create the painting for their official invite for their Miami’s Premiere Gala.

Oceania Cruises invited Noel to join their Artist in Residence Program on 2013 where he remains today while exhibiting and participating in events and Art Fairs in the US & the World. As a constant personal quest, Noel’s work is always evolving, from techniques and mediums to subject matter, capturing the attention of youthful art enthusiasts and educated collectors. Noel is represented exclusively by the TOROSIETE Museum.
