Wilfredo Lam, abstract, 1953
Wilfredo Lam was a Cuban-born artist, best known for his large-scale paintings that revive Afro-Cuban imagery in order to explore themes of social injustice, spirituality and rebirth. Pursuing a career within the avant-garde, he was inspired by, and friends with, some of the most renowned artists of the 20th century such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Frida
Kahlo. He created a unique style that was characterized by his use of hybrid figures which went on to influence other artists. Despite focusing most on painting, Lam also worked with sculpture, ceramics and printmaking.
Tate Modern staged a retrospective of Lam's work in 2017. There is also a centre dedicated to his work in Havana.
