Emilio Perez's Large-Scale Mural in Cuba

April 29, 2015

Emilio Perez will be featured in the exhibition Detrás Del Muro II during the 12th Havana Biennial. The artist will install a 20-meter site-specific mural along Havana's iconic Malecón. The exhibition opens Sunday, May 24th, 6pm.

The site specific mural for the Havana Malecón, Un Verso Sencillo, or, A Simple Verse, is inspired by Versos Sencillos, a book of poems by Cuban poet and national hero Jose Marti y Perez. It is Perez's largest artwork to date, and the first to be shown in Cuba, the country of his parents' birth.
