(22 Aug 2017) A Cuban street artist said Monday that he was detained by police and told to erase the more than 200 or so murals that have gained him widespread attention throughout the country. Yulier Rodriguez Perez said authorities kept him in custody for two days last week and told him that he will be charged with damaging property if he does not remove the whimsical abstract images that he has painted on decrepit buildings and partially collapsed walls around Havana and in some provincial capitals. Rodriguez, who signs his paintings as "Yulier P.," said he has no plans to remove his art works, which stand out in a place where graffiti is rare and nearly all posters and murals feature political slogans or revolutionary figures. "I think that graffiti as an artistic work in a destroye...

Cuban street artists Danilo Maldonado aka El Sexto has been released from jail after spending 10 months for attempting to release two pigs painted with the names of Fidel and Raul Castro. Though the planned mockery of Cuba’s leader and brother failed to be executed, El Sexto’s arrest fueled international rights groups such as Amnesty International to demand the artists release and bring light to Cuba’s issues with free speech. Nik Zecevic and Jose Marcelino Ortiz examine the artist’s work and release on The Lip News. http://www.usnews.com/news/entertainment/articles/2015/10/20/cuban-artist-el-sexto-is-freed-after-10-months-in-prison http://thelip.tv/ http://www.youtube.com/theliptv2

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.

They should not have to be afraid of being a street artist, just because they think that they do not have the materials to become one. I want to show my people different ways to express themselves without having the most expensive tools nor loosing their roots. In 24 days I want to travel 9 cuban cities, meet the people and put whatever inspires me on the walls in each one of them. There has never been a book or documentary about Cuban street art and I want to be the first one who makes that happen. I want Cuban people to see different things on their walls, not only portraits of Fidel, Che or Jose Marti. The idea is to think bigger and ou...
