Camaguey: Art and the City

Painter Ileana Sanchez has made her mark on the Cuban city of Camaguey ‒ literally ‒ by enlivening everything from alleyways to bicitaxis with her vivid, uplifting scenes of African Cuban culture. Whimsical cats are among her signature motifs. On a visit to Camaguey, I had the pleasure of meeting Ileana and buying two of her canvases at the casa-estudio (home studio-cum-gallery) she shares with her artist husband, Joel Jover, and their dog, Flor.
