Sánchez´ participation in this exhibit has to do with the fact that last February UNESCO officially declared the old urban center in the Cuban province of Camagüey, the artist´s hometown, a World Cultural Heritage site.
The works by the artist included are "Bicitaxi", "Volando sobre la ciudad" (Flying over the City) –both referring to everyday life in her local community- and "Payasos" (Clowns), which feature naive art.
Resembling comic strips, full of genuine Cuban elements and bright colors, the works feature apparently naive images, while clearly showing the painter´s mastery of artistic techniques.
Paintings by Sánchez have been exhibited in eight other nations in Europe and the Americas, including the United States, Brazi , Spain and Cyprus .
A graduate from the Provincial Art School, Sánchez is the author of several wall paintings, located in open spaces here in Cuba and abroad, including the Benicia Perdomo alley and the ‘Parque de los Gatos´ park –both in Camagüey.
