Cuba is a colorful country. Like a painting, its strong contrasts makes this little island a unique place in the world. The contradictions of fairness and equality against its tough history and present make Cuba a living puzzle. Like a true piece of art: some love it and some hate it, but no one remains indifferent to it.

Come with me and discover the real Cuba, its colors, its rhythms, its glory and its misery, but above all, its wonderful people.

 

Come with me to Cienfuegos and meet three talented Cuban artists at work. On this interview for paintplayandtravel.com they tell us about their art and inspiration. Audio in Spanish – English subtitles.
