Cuban artist, Omar Alonso, can be found in a small gallery exhibiting and selling his art – on the Mercaderes, no.120 in old Havana. The gallery can be found on the way to Plaza Habana Vieja. Both he and his work will be available for the next month in the Taller Del Papel gallery in Havana.
Alonso is a self taught artist. His work is abstract; some in acrylic, some in sharp dry print (ponta seca), a type of wooden print stamp. He works on canvas and paper and at other times on the beautiful roughly-hewn handmade paper that Cuban artists so often use in their artistic work.
If you can’t get to Havana, we will shortly have a few of his works of art for sale on our Cuban art for sale page.
