Alejandro Simon – Wifredo Lam and I at U.P.V

Published June 7, 2012

“While I was walking throughout the Polytechnic University and seeing the permanent sculpture and installation pieces I saw one that caught my attention more than the rest. Not because I liked it more than the rest, even though it was an interesting one for the abstracted design look it displayed, but because it was a UPV’s student homage to Wifredo Lam. He is one of the most, not to say the most internationally known Cuban artist. This semester for me was a semester of research on Cuban painting of the beginning of the 20th century. Carlos Enrique, René Portocarrero, Amelia Peláez, Wifredo Lam are a few on the list I was studying.”
