FLOWERS IN CARNAVAL

This piece was created specifically for Carnaval Miami 2012
once I was selected as the poster artist for the event.

In Flowers in Carnaval, there are 35 Malanga leaves representing the 35 years of celebrating Carnaval Miami. The Malanga is a vine-like plant which grows rapidly and intertwines itself around just about anything. Almost every Latin home I know and then some have this plant. In my paintings I show what these plants (the people of Cuba) are doing when no one is paying attention. It also represents what Cubans have to do to survive and keep their very existence and culture alive just 90 miles away from the land of plenty. The painting also has 8 Flowers representing Calle Ocho, and the musical instruments which is what Carnaval is all about – its music and dance. The Double bass represents my love for the music of the legendary “Cachao” because his music transports me to the music my parents listened to while in Cuba back when it was an Island of abundance and prosperity. I have created many paintings from this series listening to his music.
