Fidel Castro Writes Article on his 90th Birthday


The local young artist Ivan Carbonel, who is artistically known as Machuty, felt inspired from the Commander-in-chief Fidel Castro to create it and has long desired to present it to him.

"Since I was a child, I have admired him due to his progressive ideas and his human values to defend the man and the environment, so his nineteenth birthday was an encouragement that made me to do this little artistic piece." Machuty said.

"In that work, I represent two growers and guerilla fighters who dialogue one another, while a challenging and beautiful and huge palm tree, which is the symbol of the Cuban idiosyncrasy, rise. Moreover, one of its leaves shows an allegory about the grade of our undefeated Commander-in-chief by being the main axis within that composition." Machuty said.

He also pointed out that he included the figures of the local growers given they were a bastion and a strong support of the then local Ejercito Rebelde (Rebel Army) to get the victory of the Cuban Revolution.

Machuty applied a mixed technique on card, along with a vibrant and balanced range of colors such as the red, blue, yellow, green and characteristic elements of his work where the illumination plays a key role which adds vitality. / By Lucia Sanz - Radio Rebelde / Translated by Juan Carlos Caballero.
