Yaquelin Abdala (born 1968) is part of the modern generation of Cuban artists. She is a mixed media artist, working with traditional and physical media. Not much is known about her personal life, but according to her portfolio website, she is still active as an artist.


Abdala displayed her work, brightly colored "faux" paintings, at the Fifth Havana Biennial (6 May – 30 June 1994).[1] The subject of the paintings was a combination of urban and rural Cuba, their mythologies, folk tales, and contrasts, featuring personal anecdotes and dreams of Abdala's.[2] Abdala has been featured in several prominent gallery shows, including the acclaimed exhibit "Kuba Ok", which had several pieces purchased and displayed by a patron in Germany.[3]
