Woodblock printing has been used as a technique for centuries. This contemporary wood block print “Gato y Pescao (Cat and Fish)” by Roberto Gil Esteban of Cuba celebrates this stylized form and shows the Cuban sense of humor. His style of work is classified as Naïve Art, which is characterized by its childlike whimsy.
Roberto is known for depicting the vibrant life he sees around him in his native Cuban village. His works often include tropical landscapes, mischievous animals and the charismatic people Roberto encounters every day. This lively piece makes a great addition to any room in your home or as a unique house warming gift.
Please note that each print is individually printed, is signed, titled and numbered. There might be slight variations to the print quality since each in the series is hand printed separately. This adds to the piece’s unique charm.

"My principal inspiration is to reflect hope and happiness in my work. I want people around the world to be able to see the joy and happiness of life in Cuba." - Roberto Gil Esteban, Cuba
