Havana.- The Spanish city of Segovia is exhibiting 69 works by the renowned Cuban artist Wifredo Lam.
The exhibit, being held at Andres Laguna’s House, highlights the work of Lam, who is considered one of the top exponents of Cuban surrealist painting.
Experts describe the artist as a very interesting character, because he represents a great mixture of races and cultures: his father was Chinese and his mother was African of European origin.
Among Lam’s friends were renowned painters, including Picasso, Liger, Miro, Matisse and Pierre Loeb.
He returned to Cuba in 1941 and began developing a surrealistic style with Afro-Cuban characteristics.
