Cubocanadian is a Canada-Cuba endeavor that developed out of a long running conversation between a frequent Cuba visitor from Canada and several Cuban painters regarding how young Cuban artists without state or corporate sponsorship could expose their works to a larger audience than the visiting tourist market. Now 5 years after our initial efforts, the core of Cubanocanadian artists continues to grow as changes in the Cuban economy bring new opportunities for young artists in the country. Cubanocanadian is thus able to represent a variety of artists with diverse works in various contemporary styles.
The Canadian component of Cubanocanadian is located in the heart of that nation's capital of Ottawa, Ontario. Along with promoting and selling the artworks on the internet, we also stage exhibitions of Cubanocanadian artwork in the local area.
None of Cubanocanadian's artists are tied exclusively to Cubanocanadian, and each continues to exhibit and sell their works in solo shows and group shows in Cuba and elsewhere. Individually and collectively, their works have been collected and exhibited throughout the world, including Canada, the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Italy and Russia.
We hope that you enjoy the Cuban artworks presented on our site!
