Camagüey, Cuba, Sep 13.- The artisan artist Ramón Guerra López works in a set of pieces with artistic and utilitarian value, works that will be commercialized through the Cuban Fund of Cultural Assets (FBC), in Camagüey.
The proposals are distinguished by their variety and are unique and unrepeatable, which interested parties may purchase in units of that institution of the Ministry of Culture, in the context of the activities for the 61st anniversary of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR), founded by Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, on September 28, 1960.Among the ceramic proposals, there are pieces to place magazines and newspapers, as well as others destined to decorate the home, offices and rooms of tourist facilities, among other places.
The creator also reflects the architecture of the city, for which he feels proud to be on the select list of universal heritage. The reddish colors of the roofs stand out, the torrential towers of the centuries-old churches and the colonial mansions that defy the infinity of time.
In his words, the productions are realistic in their own way, where the features of the colonial town predominate. In addition, he combines reality with dreams and taste. His works are found in more than 15 countries, including Italy, Mexico, Canada, the United States, Germany, Spain, Argentina, the Netherlands, Belgium and China.
His work in clay led him to a stable line of work, although renewed in each collection. The beginnings of it were directed to the productions of houses, facades, churches of the city of Camagüey of the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries (Translated by Linet Acuña Quilez)
