Callejón de Hamlet

This project has been going on for 24 years, at one marginal neighbourhood in Centro Habana. It's the work of a single street artist: Salvador Gonzales Escalona, who was called mad to begin with for the scale of his undertaking. Nevertheless his bright and bizarre work on the streets here has totally transformed this district. The art is all made using recycled materials and evokes the city's African-Cuban roots, mainly Santeria - a fusion of Catholic spiritualism and the Yoruba Religion. Part of the goal of this community project was to include the kids of the area by having an art and craft workshop.
