Weekend Artists Series, Part 3: Servando Cabrera Moreno, a photo-montage video…

These are some of my favourite paintings of this Cuban painter, Servando Cabrera Moreno. I hope you enjoy this short video photo montage with original music, a part of a piece I’ve been working on called “Painters Bluez”, it’s done with acoustic guitar and piano.

Please let me know what you think, let’s converse about art. Please share this post with your communities so that we can then extend the conversation and get it out there. Not only recognition of this painter, or any painter in particular, but to speak about art, discuss art, debate art and form viable communities.

    Is there any relationship between you and him, because of the familyname?
    Like this clip 🙂

      Thank you very much and I am glad you liked it but no, the surname Cabrera is not an uncommon one and although I would guess his family came from Spain, they are no relation as far as I know. I truly appreciate your visit and reply. All the best my friend,
      F.

    I do see the influence of Picasso in some of the works you shared, although others are certainly a departure from that style. I find his depictions of the human body to be beautifully structured and detailed, although I notice a propensity to elongate the eyes. I do not know if this is a technique to draw attention to them or provide them a sense of being exotic, or if this is simply an impressionistic slant to his work. And I loved the original music. The counter play of guitar and piano is exquisite and enchanting!

      Thank you Brad. Yes I also see the influence of Picasso, which he, like me, admired and made his “teacher”, but the outcome of his work did differ substantially from Picasso’s. I did notice the elongation of the eyes and like you, I wonder what the significance is. I reckon it’s just to create an effect as he was painting the “new” Cubans, supposedly “created” by the communist regime. I don’t know…I am very happy to hear you liked the music and I really appreciate your time and encouragement my friend. All the best!

    You open your readers’ eyes to new artistic horizons, Francisco.

    Here in the States we celebrate Thanksgiving this Thursday, commemorating the Pilgrim feast of 1621. More than 50 years earlier, however, Pedro Menéndez de Avilés founded the city of St. Augustine in Florida. The Spanish landing party celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving on reaching shore. My heartfelt thanks go out to for your prayers and support.

      Thank you Anna, and my prayers and support are with you. That is a beautiful anecdote of history which I really appreciate reading and knowing…which I did not know…and sharing as well. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours my good friend!
      Greetings from Valencia,
      F.
