Description:

Eduin Fraga's intention is to represent the complex realities of daily experience in Cuba. His work focuses on social themes and uses mixed media collage with acrylic, charcoal and other materials. It is a unique form of art that includes article excerpts and images from various Cuban and American newspapers on canvas or cardboard as a means of capturing dynamic fragments of the societies in which he lives. Through this approach, he tries to create within each painting an historical register of past events, processes, and experiences that have shaped society today.
