The Cuban Collection • Cuba
Cuban art is an exceptionally diverse cultural blend of African, South American, European and North American elements, reflecting the diverse demographic makeup of the island. Cuban artists embraced European modernism. There is a flourishing street art movement influenced by Latin American artists.
After the Cuban Revolution of 1959, the artist left behind, merely content to be creating art in the government-sponsored programs, working within the confine of implied censorship. It was during the 1980s in which art began to reflect true uninfluenced expression until today.
