Cuban naïf painting to Luxemburg
The Painture Gallery, previous venue of his other exhibitions, demands again this self-taught creator, popular by his predilection towards social and country motives according to brilliant tones and dimensions according to that plastic tendency, which surged in France in the post impressionist period.

For the occasion Blanco Aroche created a set of twelve oil paintings on canvass, with different formats, as he declared to AIN that this time he is dealing the bucolic aspects with a stronger quantity of fable and fantasy.

Some like Concierto para novios (Concert for brides), Amor de verano (Summer love) and Noche profunda (Deep night) were named under the influence of the classical music pieces he always listens to as he paints. He is a man of 45 years old from the municipality of San Cristóbal in Pinar del Río.

He is a member of the UNEAC, he has paintings in the National Fine Arts Museum, in private collections in several continents and donated to the Sociedad de Niños con Síndrome de Down (Society of Children with Downs Syndrome) in Mexico. He is also to be found in the book Arte Mágico en Cuba (Magical Art in Cuba) by Gerardo Movial, because of the impact of his creativity on a national scale.

He teaches the children, who are part of his painting workshop, the characteristics of naïf movement, with simple and spontaneous forms and simplified images, away from the traditional rules and perspectives, which lets them feel very identified with the natural creation of that stage in life.

Among the most renowned painters of that tendency, extended from Europe to America, are the French Henry Rosseau; the German Paps and the North American H. Pippin.
