CB Hoyo was born in 1995 in Havana, Cuba. At a young age, he immigrated to the Dominican Republic, and now lives in Belgium. His artistic process began as a child, when he started interpreting the world through his paintings. Over the past few years, his work has increased in stature.
A self-trained artist, CB Hoyo continually produces works that celebrate life itself. Fresh, colorful, and fun are three words that easily describe his creations. Working in acrylics, either on canvas or paper, the artist uses a mixture of art historical trends but always incorporates his unique voice.
As the exciting news of the lift on the Cuban embargo continues, we take the time to revisit one of our favorite and memorable projects of 2012: Wrinkles of The City – Havana, Cuba by JR & José Parlá. The two artists surprised the city with stunning walls that paid tribute to those who lived through the Cuban Revolution for the occasion of the Havana Biennal. Cuba is now destined to change and we find ourselves taking another look at this video to imagine how Havana will never be the same again.
Here’s a video of the project documenting JR & José Parlá‘s collaboration:
