Manuel Mendive

Manuel Mendive (Havana 1944), is the leading contemporary Cuban artist. He is also a Santeria priest, whose spirituality permeates his art in several genres: drawing, painting, body painting, woodcarving, soft and metal sculpture, installations, and performances that are loosely choreographed with African rhythms and Baroque music. A recognized international master who has received numerous awards in Cuba, Africa, and Europe, Mendive came of age and thrived as an artist after the 1959 Cuban revolution. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, Africa, and Latin America.
