The Prisoner, 1982, Oil on canvas, 24.5” x 20.5”

Camilo Franqui (b. 1956, Havana): Calling himself a “creator of sensations” more than a painter, Franqui traces his influence to Cuban masters Wifredo Lam and Fidelio Ponce. After leaving Cuba for Paris, where he lived for many years, Franqui moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico. His 2003 exhibition at Meza Fine Art in Miami, titled From Paris to the Tropics, traces that journey. (Cintas for art, 1982-83)
