The confessions of a painter are his drawings. Unzueta's work is chiefly about lonely, aloof women, who are the main characters within a space almost devoid of interest, they are decrepit matrons, sophisticated Spanish ladies, royal subjects, showgirls, black women, sad Cuban matrons, decadent ballerinas, listless overweight women lounging in a chaise lounge, circus dwarfs, nuns, deranged lunatics, and ugly ducklings beyond repair.....His work also includes erotic drawings characterized by the simplicity of impeccable lines "undisturbed" by color, His depiction of the Cuban theme is via makeshift coffee brewers of yesteryear. Painting like a child, and for children, his work is filled with fantasy and color, There's also the children's books illustrations, book covers, and so much more......
Unzueta lives and works in Los Cristianos, Tenerife, Spain.
