Influenced by his experience and his contact with nature as a photographer, Estevez decided to paint. He is part of a group of landscape artists whose roots can be traced to artists that came to Cuba, particularly those who came during the XIX Century such as Henri Cleenewerck , Esteban Chartrand and Federico Mialhe among others. Their admiration for the Cuban landscape served as inspiration for a vast body or work. Estevez takes from these artists their main theme and also formal aspect such as palette and compositions. However, he achieves a very personal way or portraying the Cuban landscape though his unique paintings.
