Enrique (Kico) Govantes was born in Havana, Cuba in 1957 surrounded by art. His grandfather was the Minister of Public Works, his father an architect. Paul Smart wrote in his article on Govantes, “Ace of Cups,” (Ulster Publishing. April 28, 2005) that although they did not support the Batista regime, the Govantes were exiled from Castro’s Cuba with only the art they could carry in their suitcases. He has presented solo shows at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy; Nicole Fiacco/MODO Gallery in Hudson; Hunter’s Point Naval Shipyard; Terrain; Carlson Gallery; Zuni and the Art in Transit Program in San Francisco. He contributed to group exhibitions in the Catskills, New York City and San Francisco. Pulse Magazine, Ulster Publishing, Register Star, Independent Bay Area Reporter and Bay Area Guardian and others have overwhelmingly reviewed his work. The work of Kico Govantes is held in numerous major private collections in the San Francisco bay area, United States and Europe. 1979 Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, Rhode Island 1980 B.A., Beloit College, Beloit, Wisconsin Selected Solo Exhibitions/Projects: 2002 Open Studio, May, Hunter's Point Naval Shipyard, San Francisco 2001 Open Studio, October, Hunter's Point Naval Shipyard, San Francisco 2001 Open Studio, May, Hunter's Point Naval Shipyard, San Francisco 1997 The Hours of the Day, Public Art Project: Art in Transit Program, Market Street, San Francisco Art Commission 1993 Figurate, Terrain, San Francisco 1990 Introductions: Palmas y Colores, Carlson Gallery, San Francisco 1988 Safari in Paint, Zuni, San Francisco 1987 Adventures of Ansel and Gertrude, Zuni, San Francisco 1984 City Of Men, Zuni, San Francisco Group Exhibitions: 2005 A Universe of Art, Credit Suisse, New York, NY 2004 Neighborhood, Greene County Council on the Arts, Catskill, New York 2000 Victory, Queer Latina/o Artists Coalition, San Francisco 1999 What Is Art (Invitational Show), Oakland Museum, Oakland 1996 Fifty/50, Terrain, San Francisco 1995 Oscar Wilde: A Man of Great Importance, Jamie Brunson, Marita Dingus & Kico Govantes, At Ten to Three, Terrain, San Francisco 1994 Homage to the Bard, Terrain, San Francisco 1993 Filler, Painting, Terrain, San Francisco 1992 Not a Theme: Harlequin, Terrain, San Francisco 1991 Group Show, Mission Cultural Center 1989 Artists of The Americas, Gump's Gallery, San Francisco 1981 Mainstreet Exiles, Goodman Building, San Francisco Publications: 2005 Smart, Paul.
