Un Tranvia Hamodo Deseo (A Streetcar Named Desire) 1999

Painted by Cuban artist Orestes Campos in 1999, “A Streetcar Named Desire” (Un Tranvia Hamodo Deseo).

This painting measures 116 x 90 cm.

Figures from classical Renaissance paintings incongruously placed aboard a modern street car in Cuba.

You will find irony and humour in many of the paintings of Cuban artists today.  Campos frequently uses figures of the Renaissance in his works.
