Eastern Cuban Category Description
Category: Paintings - Eastern Cuban
Description of Category:
This category contains contemporary works by artists from the Oriente region of Cuba. The works are generally rich and vibrant from what is often described as the heartland of Cuban culture. At a distance of over 650 miles east of Havana, the area is not well known by Americans in general, due to the complex relationship between Cuba and the United States.
The artists themselves span generations and include a former museum director, professors and graduates of the regionís art academies, as well as a few artists who are self-taught. Paintings from this region vary in subject and style. Classical and modern styles intertwine and rich hues abound. Included are breathtaking landscapes, genre scenes, abstract works, surrealistic themes and richly imagined commentaries on life in Cuba. Oil and acrylic are the primary mediums.
"Cuban Art is HOT!" or so says Art Business News in the March 2005 issue. Our gallery is now working with the Eastern Cuba Cultural Exchange to promote the art of the Oriente region of Eastern Cuba. We believe this is a great opportunity for our clients to add another layer to their Caribbean collections.
