Fusterlandia

Havana, Cuba

Fusterlandia is the name given to the fishing town of Jaimanitas, on the outskirts of Havana. Created by Cuban artist Jose Fuster--sometimes called the "Picasso of the Caribbean"--the vibrant arts complex is a unique work of public art, stretching around street corners and onto more than 80 houses in the neighborhood.

Fusterlandia began as a small house decked out in a fantasia of glass and clay, with bold colors and rough- and smooth-textured surfaces.

The walkways of Fusterlandia ramble, dead-end, and climb stairs for a roof-top view of the sea.

The mosaics of Jose Fuster are now embedded onto doors, facades and fences all over the neighborhood.
