The Cuban countryside is again the inspiration of the artist.

Juan Manuel Velázquez Fernández continues to develop his creative career in the field of landscapes paintings, this time his visual discourse adopts compositions from rural environments.

“Genesis” (60 x 80 cm) a the scenes executed in oil on canvas that make up the series “Rivers of Cuba” this time from El Cornito, province of Las Tunas, Cuba; It is his most recent creative proposal.

A site chosen by the creator for its representativeness and relevance in the panorama of Cuban culture, precisely because it was the birthplace of Juan Cristóbal Nápoles Fajardo (El Cucalambé) and where one of the most important days of peasant traditions is celebrated on the island.

The central motive that moves the author of these pieces is the desire to offer future generations the possibility of appreciating distinctive places with an emphasis on local and national history, as well as encouraging the need to preserve the environments of the Cuban flora and fauna.

“Through the realism that characterizes my work, I’m not looking for a mere representation, but I’m looking for a poetic vision with ecological suggestions,” says Juan Manuel.

The paintings that will compose this series will be published in the profile of this creator in the community of Artecru.
