As an artist from Norman, OK, the Norman Art Council (NAC) invited me in Spring of 2016 to participate in the “ONE Noche Cubana” art auction event to support the arts in the city.
For this event I made a facade inspired by Cuba’s unique buildings. I used my passion for dollhouses to inspire this project.
The facade was made with different materials, starting with cardboard, plaster, wood, plastic and clay.
The project was inspired by the colonial Cuban architecture.
A lot of the buildings are weathered and plants have grown on the walls. But something very beautiful are the colors of doors, windows or arches, people try to give them there own identity.
Some buildings havr lost all their color, but people are in charge to give them life with plants, decorations, pots, or even hanging clothes and flags.
Graffiti of “Viva Cuba Libre” covered by plants.
This is the final product, the facade is inside the shadow box!
Here I am at the ONE Noche Cubana 2016.
Lucky me, the piece was sold!
Hope you like it,
