"I would tend to say that my first love affair was with a crayon and a white piece of paper.  Ever since I can remember, picking up a pen, crayon or colored pencil and letting my brain waver with thoughts superf



Yiddish Wisdom Box

Wood box, carved and painted.  I spent the better part of my childhood growing up on Miami Beach with a lot of Jewish and Yiddish influences.  This is in honor of those years and all the amazing culture nuances I picked up. Needless to say, they fare well with my Cuban roots.  Each box is hand carved, you will notice that all lines are composed of dots, I am still currently teaching myself how to use the tool.  It has a nasty habit of getting a tad bit hot and my small digits take quick offense. The figures are created in clay, baked, glossed and placed on the box after the box has been stained.  Depending on the size of the piece this can take anywhere from 5 hours to a day or two.

ArtesMiami Presents New Poetry Book by Gustavo Novoa

The Chilean-American poet-artist Gustavo Novoa and ArtesMiami President Dr. Aida Levitanwill read poems in English and Spanish from Novoa's Jungle Fables/Poemas de la Jungla, a bilingual poetry book published by Editorial Ultramar, the publishing division of ArtesMiami. The free event will be at 7 p.m. on November 29th, 2018, at Books and Books, 265 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, Florida. 

Jungle Fables/Poemas de la Jungla is a charming poetry book illustrated by the celebrated paintings of endangered animals created by Novoa. According to Charles Wieland, "There is a quality to Novoa's fables reminiscent of ancient proverbs. As with Aesop and other fablers of antiquity, Novoa ridicules the fashionable world of snobbery, shams and the injustices man bestows on his fellow man." This book has many levels and can be enjoyed by both children and adults because of its simple but appealing poetry and beautiful illustrations.
