Cuban Artist Marlon Portales on display at Galeria Galiano in La Habana











A highlight of my trip to Cuba was meeting the artist, Marlon Portales. Enchanted by the idea of owning a painting of a Cuban beach scene by a Cuban artist, I asked Marlon what the beach was in this painting. “Miami Beach,” he replied. I quickly appreciated the irony of owning a painting of an American beach, by a Cuban artist. If you happen to be in La Habana on Thursday, check him out.
