Alexis Esquivel Bermúdez(La Palma, Pinar del Rio, 1968)

Alexis Esquivel is a mulatto artist and intellectual who has never wished to "whiten” himself but, on the contrary, to become darker, blacker. This attitude is seen not only in his physical appearance, the characteristics of his skin, hair and hairdo, but resides in the deepest strata of his consciousness. Esquivel presents this in the sharp perceptions of the black population's social reality in his paintings
