“El Corral” by the Cuban artist, Yuri Moreno. “El Corral” depicts a sense of endangerment to the environment. Many of the art works by Yuri Moreno reflect his concern about the threats to the environment, long before environmentalism was the darling topic of conversation among the elites of this world. He paints in the naïve art style, colorful works, child-like but depicting the concerns of the modern world.  Notice that life is barren beyond the boundaries of this farm, the earth, this planet. There is nothing else but the planet we live on.

This painting measures 42 x 52 cm.

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.
