Moises Finalé Aldecoa(Cárdenas, Matanzas, 1957)

The work of Moisés Finalé (who settled in Paris around 1989 and then placed an extravagant dieresis on the i of his name) has always been based on cultural references of multiple origins; many stemming not only from Cuba and Afro-Cuba, but from ancient Egypt, India’s classical period, pre-Columbian Mexico, popular Haiti and, of course, black or sub-Saharan Africa. Finalé uses these cultural references in a liberal, whimsical manner, with no intention of creating a discourse of historicist, reflexive or intellectual character
