Decadencia y Entropia Exposition in Trinidad, Cuba and Canada
An international project between Cuba and Canada, the exhibition opened on December 26th, 2016 and will continue until January 26th, 2017. After this, the show will leave the island for a special presentation in Ottawa, Canada in the spring of 2017.
While Edras' work juxtaposes industrial atrophy and natural rebirth using meticulously hand cut materials on canvases painted in acrylic tones of rust and metalic neglect, the often monochromatic canvases of Adonis present an urban architecture that is undeniably in decay while still proudly surviving against the odds.

Snacks and designer beverages ("Cubanocanadian Summer", "Cubanocanadian Winter" catered by Yurien Lopez Reyes
