Outsider Art from Cuba/Cuban Art Brut

A former construction worker in Havana, Morales likes to draw on the streets, on found materials or on abandoned building walls. Recently he started to live on the streets returning home to sleep at night when a relative with whom he lives lets him enter. He now works mostly with colored pencils and pieces of found cardboard, wood, paper or textile fragments. A recurring figure seems to be a mysterious woman, usually nude or scantily dressed, standing stiffly with arms crossed  or interacting with a man in an unresolved situation. His drawings sometimes incorporate text, jokes and local slang words.
