The European Parliament hosted a four-day exhibition of paintings on Cuba made by painters Francisco Arredondo, from Cuba, and Linda Starbatty, from Germany, said today diplomatic sources.
Norma Goicochea, Cuban Ambassador in Belgium, Luxembourg and the European Union, visited the exhibition that tackles Cuban religion and culture.
Arredondo said that the paintings show his view on the African cultures prevailing in Cuba, which he represented with symbols, rites and signs.
Arredondo added that the color is used as a symbol to express feelings and emotions, to share representations and ceremonies as means to balance the composition.
Meanwhile, Starbatty's paintings show buildings and landscapes from the cities of Baracoa and Havana, with the evident influence of Yoruba religion and Cuban culture.
