Print by Omar Alonso

 

The sometimes dark, sometimes comical blend of surrealism found in Havana artist Omar Alonso’s work can be found in this numbered print of his.  This work is from 2009, in which he uses an engraving technique with dry point on formica. The work is a representation of a woman playing music while dancing.  She is, Alonso says  like an actress of the Latin jazz scene.  Alonso unlocks for the purpose of externalization a dark complex personal world, in chromatic austerity.

This numbered print by Omar Alonso is from a collection of prints by the artist.  It is a new acquisition at Ateneo Art Cuba.  This print measures 5″ x 9″ inches in size with a border, making the entire print 9″ x 14 1/4″.

Omar Alonso is a self-trained artist and graphic artist working in a variety of media. He is a member of ACCA.  He can be found surrounded by his works on the Mercaderes, no.120 in old Havana in a small gallery. The gallery can be found on the way to Plaza Habana Vieja.

Obviously, we were very excited about finding the artist Manuel A. Alvarez Suazo (Lolo) busy in his studio on Obispo street painting for his upcoming exhibition in Denmark, theme:  the classic American car seen in the streets of Havana.   We love his photo realism and his surreal perspective.  His work is unmistakably Cuban and highly interesting.
