Latin, Carib art masters’ show

An
art exhibition titled A Retrospective of The Isles of Youth (Pines) Painters 1992-2009:
Painters of Infinite Love is on display at the Treasure Island Galleria Shop.

The
show displays the works of four leading Latin and Caribbean art masters whose
work explores the interrelationship between the Cayman Islands and its near
neighbour Cuba.

The
exhibition includes paintings by Lazaro Herrera also known as Tuty; Carlos Guitterez;
Gonzalo Gonzalez and Alexis Leyva also known as Kcho.

According
to a press release, the gallery on West Bay Road, Kcho is the most important
contemporary painter from the Caribbean today. His works are in major museums
around the world and his artworks are regularly sold at Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
The Kcho works in the exhibition highlight the different mediums he works in.

Tuty’s
works are in important collections in the USA, Europe, Japan and Canada. The
artist’s new realist style is highly influential and the show includes some of
his larger signature pieces, the advisory added.

Several
of Gonzalez’s works reflect areas where Caymanians emigrated to the Isle of
Youth and Gutierrez’s works explores the plight of the Cuban diaspora.

exhibition is open daily, 10am-8pm. The final day of the show is Thursday, 30
March.
