About Cuban Art
In few places does multiculturalism exist in as intoxicating of a blend as in Cuba, where indigenous, African, and Spanish influences fuse to create in an incredible mix. Cuban art is a showcase of this melting pot, with a number of different elements that hail from all over the world. Cuban art is often colorful and full of vibrancy, a fitting counterpart to Cuban food and music. Like all art, it has many different genres, ranging from landscape art and portraiture to abstract. You can find both originals and prints in the vast inventory available on eBay. Contemporary Cuban art is known for a movement called vanguardism, which is an attempt to recognize and celebrate the mix of different genres that such a multicultural artistic landscape inspires. Much of Cuban art is politically motivated, with popular images of Che Guevara and Ruben Gonzalez finding frequent expression. Cuban cigar art is another popular genre, with prints of Cuban cigar designs, making the perfect addition to any dorm room. Cuban art is a proud tradition that continues to evolve today.
