French naive art museum promotes Cuban painters from Bayate

Santiago de Cuba, Aug 22 (Prensa Latina) The French naive art museum is currently promoting the work of painter Luis Joaquin Rodriguez, leader of the Bayate group that settled in the Santiago de Cuba municipality of Julio Antonio Mella some 30 years ago.

The review, for which the artists from Santiago de Cuba are grateful to Gerard Campagna, summarizes Rodriguez’s career and the work of that pictorial initiative that reflects the landscape of the Cuban countryside with a brush that is neither so primitive nor so naive.

The publication highlights the international legacy of the artists from Bayate and, in particular, their participation in the Santa Fe Folk Art Fair, in state of New Mexico, in the United States, where they have been revealed with their original and authentic pieces.

Dozens of exhibitions in Cuba and abroad, with works in permanent and private collections in Uruguay, France, Spain, Belgium, Germany, the United States, Chile, Haiti, Brazil, Sweden, and Switzerland, show the importance of those creations from a community in this eastern province.

The Bayate Naive Art Gallery-Workshop, based in downtown Santiago de Cuba, is one of the axes of that artistic work, which also includes a meeting to pay tribute to Ruperto Jay Matamoros, a paradigm of that artistic trend.
