Shekra piece "Cuba" in Trinidad

Considering the difficulty of getting paint in Cuba, it is surprising to find a vibrant street art scene, particularly in La Habana. Murals by local and international artists adorn the crumbling remains of buildings in the old quarter, showcasing various styles and an abundance of talent. Take a walk with me down the streets of the Caribbean island and explore the Cuban street art within.

The following pictures are from Callejón de Hamel an alleyway of art created by Camaguey born painter, muralist and sculptor Salvador González Escalona. The alley began in 1990 where he created murals and sculptures from the limited paint and resources available. Salvador’s art is an expression of Afro-Cuban culture and history.

About author

Madam ZoZo

Hi! I'm Madam ZoZo, aka Zoë, an Australian designer, creative consultant, blogger and digital nomad. I'm passionate about travel, design, dance and new experiences that fuel my creativity. I strive to travel in a style that is gentle on the earth and that contributes to the communities I visits, even if it is merely to take away a greater understanding of a different culture. Duende by Madam ZoZo, is where I share the stories of my travels and the duende (soul/inspiration) I find along the way.
