Manuel Mendive Hoyo aka Manuel Mendive
Country: Cuba (Panafricanist agenda again)
Style: Abstract/ Surreal/ Afro-Cubanismo
Medium: pastel on heavy paper laid downon board, Acrylic on canvas and oil on canvas
Fun  Fact: In 1982, Mendive made his first trip to West Africa and traveled throughout the region for a year gaining new insight into his Yoruba roots.[11] He drew energy from spending time in Africa and became inspired on a whole new level.
Quote: the critic Edward Sullivan says, “I conceive of his work as daring, rebellious, unconventional and brave. He does not care about fashion or trends. His images, which so often incorporate and wildly transform the vestiges of African stimulus, do not appeal necessarily to those who seek the latest trend in the art world. Instead of intellectualized minimalism or hollow conceptualism, Mendive relies on the senses: thought, touch, color, breath, air, and fire”
