José Angel Hechevarria Labarta
José Angel Hechevarria composes significantly in Caribbean style. The colors not only emphasize “la vida tropical” but also mirrors the Cuban soul. Color as a Caribbean reality. Even in everyday life. Color and music as a cultural attitude, a core value that makes living with problems of daily routine easier. Not contrived but as a part of the Cuban lust for life.
José Angel is one of the many outstanding Cuban artists who received a fantastic education at the Art Academies of Cuba, and who stand out because of their technical skills. The Cuban art scene does not experience a boom by chance. It is influenced by US tourism, which caused quite a hysterical run on Cuban art.
