Departure to Fusterlandia, located in Jaimanita town, at the northwestern edge of the Cuban capital. The artist who changed the neighborhood is named Fuster, a Cuban naive artist specializing in ceramics, painting, drawing, engraving, and graphic design. Visit to the studio to discover roofs, walls, doorways and benches, stretching for blocks around the epicentre of his studio enclave, are adorned with his brightly coloured sculptures and mosaics : mermaids, fish, palm trees, roosters and Santería Saints.
After this visit, continue the tour to Hamel’s Alley, located in Cayo Hueso neighborhood, near the University of Havana. There you will enjoy a profusion of sculpture and murals here are the work of people who live in the alley and outlying neighborhood. It is a celebration of Afro-Cuban culture. It is a Santeria shrine. It is a wild rumba street party every Sunday afternoon. And it is the place that Salvador González Escalona, the artist who started the whole thing back in 1990, calls home.
