Roel Caboverde Llacer was born in Baracoa, Cuba on November 20, 1947. The exhibition by Cuban artists from the Meridian International Centers features “Pescadore” by the neo-Cubist Roel Caboverde Llacer and “Paisaje con Ruinas.”
Llacer comes from the East or East region of the country, which is the oldest and most historic part of Cuba. In collaboration with the Cultural Exchange of the East of Cuba, Meridian will present an exhibition of works by artists from the eastern region of Cuba from 15 October. And he promises to try to continue his work by supporting artists in the east of Cuba and collecting their works.
But any exhibition or sale of Cuban art must be non-governmental, because the administrations of the United States and Cuba have long been unwilling to work together.
To help these artists, Hensley founded the Eastern Cuban Cultural Exchange Association. Taking advantage of the 1991 lawsuit that allowed Americans to spend money to buy art in Cuba, Hensley discovered that he could import art while traveling to the United States with them. In fact, they created their own artwork using cardboard cutouts and created their own paintings.
