Nation report part 2

  1. 1. THE ART OF CUBA By: Errol Farley
  2. 2. FERRER • Most well know for his portraiture and urban landscapes he has carefully captured the essence of Cuban culture in every brush stroke. He has been awarded 14 medals for his contribution to the development of art and culture in Cuba.
  3. 3. Joherms Quiala Brooks • This surrealistic painter thinks of himself as a chronicler for his times. He says “A black man has to be as authentic as possible. Brooks prides his work and his spirituality. He gave a work to the Vatican’s Collection of Art after the Pope visited Cuba.
  4. 4. Street Art (previous slide) • Street art has been sweeping the globe in various forms and has recently been applied in Cuba to make for some exceptional murals around town. Technically known as vandalism or graffiti, street art is its own special kind of art that breaks as many rules as possible. Spray paint was used in this piece by its anonymous creator. Since what the artist did is considered by some illegal and destructive they often do not ever sign their work with their real name. Street artists rarely seek the kind of traditional recognition for their work that most artists do. Street artists often only want to make art, enrich their streets to their own taste, or create thought or mood provoking work that their whole community has no choice but to view it. This revolutionary style of in-your-face- illegal art is the blueprint for the 21st century youth in revolt. Taking radical viewpoints on the ownership of property these artists declare their spirit all over the town in the darkness of the night, risk jail time and fines for no chance of making a name for themselves with their work.
