A a mural artist in Havana is brightening the city streets, turning neighborhoods into outdoor art galleries. CCTV America's Michael Voss reports from Havana. Maisel Lopez is a portrait artist. But he doesn't work on canvas. Instead, he has spent the past year painting giant murals on walls around his neighborhood of Playa in Havana.
In 2012, French artist JR and Cuban American artist José Parlá collaborated on The Wrinkles of the City - Havana, Cuba: huge mural installations undertaken for the Havana Biennale, for which JR and Parlá photographed, and recorded 25 senior citizens who had lived through the Cuban revolution; creating portraits, which Parlá interlaced with calligraphic writings and abstract painterly gestures. This is their film collaboration by the same title documenting their experience.

From modern sculpture, to historic refurbished cars to an up & coming industrial art collective, Havana places much love and appreciation on art & architecture in life.
The finely-painted black and white portraits of pensive children started appearing on walls around a suburban neighbourhood of Havana two years ago, contrasting with its colourful decay and Caribbean hustle and bustle. Now there are nearly thirty such murals yet Cuban artist Maisel Lopez says he’s only just getting started on his “Colossi” series, an endeavour all the more striking in a country where street art is rare. Lopez, 31-years old, started painting the walls of homes and shops in his home district of Playa, and is now completing his first mural in neighbouring Marianao.

(14 Feb 2017) CUBAN GRAFFITI ARTIST MAKES HIS MARK IN HAVANA Three years ago, the whimsical designs of the graffiti artist with the signature Yulier P. began to appear randomly on walls throughout Havana. The first ones were large abstract renderings of rabbits, their floppy ears outlined in black against chipped concrete. Now, there is hardly a neighborhood in the Cuban capital where you can't find one of the varied, sprawling works of Yulier P. There are enormous gaping mouths, two metres (6.5 feet) high, or a flower either mixed with the image of a woman or in the hands of a child. The works of the 27-year-old artist, whose full name is Yulier Rodriguez Perez, are striking not just for their artistry and ubiquity, but the fact that they exist at all in a place where graffiti is ...
Rene Cardón of Havana has practiced the art of craftsmanship since childhood. He has built a work space in his home to work and practice his art.
