Last 60 Days in Cuba
Piki painted this collection during the last 60 days he stayed in Cuba. Where he lived and grew up, a simple raft could make a world of difference and the desire of living could take you to your death. He explains what this artwork means, saying: "Once I denied being a member of the State Security or a spy, the Cuban government tried to recruit me, knowing my plans to leave the country. My last sixty days in La Habana were a total hell. Now, I recognize that it defined my being and I consecrated my painting as the greatest defense force which I could count with." After, he adds: "The paintings are my environment, they are the day to day of many people that surround me directly and indirectly. Their decisions, their dreams, their pride and their fears have color in this pieces."
