    Fuster house

    June 15, 2018 in Cuba ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    As we enter the outskirts of Havana, we visit the studio, residence and wild kingdom of José Rodriguez Fuster, a Cuban artist. His house is decorated with tiled murals, and now the whole neighbourhood has a similar style as more than 80 neighbours have allowed Fuster to use their homes as his canvas. It's very like Guadi and Picasso.Read more

    Fusterlandia

    December 28, 2018 in Cuba ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Where does art go after Antoni Gaudí? For a hint, head west from central Havana to the seemingly low-key district of Jaimanitas, where artist José Fuster has turned his home neighborhood into a masterpiece of intricate tile work and kaleidoscopic colors – a street-art wonderland that makes Barcelona’s Park Güell look positively sedate. Imagine maximal-impact Gaudí relocated to a tropical setting.

    Cuba has a rich artistic tradition, which can be found everywhere from murals painted on walls to the fine art pieces housed in El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de La Habana. One of the most unique places to find modern Cuban art is called Fusterlandia.

    Fusterlandia is the nickname given in Jaimanitas, a seaside town just west of downtown Havana. In Jaimanitas, artist Jose Fuster has built a creative enclave called Casa de Fuster that has spilled out into the surrounding neighborhood.

    It’s no longer just his house, but Fusterlandia has expanded to include murals on other nearby buildings and walls.
