Mexican plastic artists arrived to Romerias de Mayo with 4 exhibitions, inaugurated on May 5th in the Electa Arenal Hall of the Provincial Art Center in the city of Holguin.
The work of Carlos Lomat opens the exhibition, offering his photographic vision of the Day of the Dead in Mexico, a colorful tradition of his country.
Veronica Mar proposes the exhibit "Visions of the city", series of street photography in black and white, with the influence of the Japanese movement Provoke.
"This technique consists in the handling of photography with high contrasts", said the artist. "You play with the soft focus to give a sense of movement," added Veronica, who for the first time attends the Romerias, an event that attracted her because of the multiplicity of cultural proposals and the convergence of artists from different countries, which enriches the exchange.
"Come, get on the Van", is the invitation made by Luis Espino, a photographer who has dedicated himself to travel throughout Mexico and summarizes in his exhibition part of the wonders and riches of his country, through urban and country landscapes, typical characters and cultural traditions.
For its part, Gabi Cardenas participates with a sample of prints composed of 23 colorful pieces in mixed techniques and etching. The artist commented that, although she has exhibited several times in Cuba, it is her first time in Romerias de Mayo.
"This is a festival where many people attend to experiment with their works. Many use the same techniques, but each work is differentiated by the originality that the artist brings, "concluded Cardenas.
