Art in Cuba - Artist caught between adaptation and exile 

There is one thing you can definitely say about Fidel Castro. Contrary to the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc, Cuba did not force its artists to believe in “Socialist realism”.

José Fuster is internationally known for his naïve paintings. The fact that he has embellished a whole district in Havana is probably less known. Since 1980, José Fuster lives by the sea in Jaimanitas. The 68-year-old cannot even imagine a life away from the sea. He’s got saltwater in his veins, he likes to joke.
