JOSE FUSTER

Explore the outlandish neighborhood of Fusterlandia, home to a community of creators and artist José Fuster – the “Picasso of Cuba.”


José Fuster grew up in a rundown coastal town, but at an early age showed a creative spirit, which later materialized into the childish-style of Naïve art. His professional career has since been displayed across the world. But the most lasting impact of his blocky, bright displays will undoubtedly be the neighborhood made in his image – Fusterlandia.

The transformation began over three decades ago when Fuster moved into an ordinary house on the outskirts of Havana. He went about remaking his space into a mosaic of colors and soon inspired his neighbors to do the same. Today, it’s one of the island’s biggest draws with locals converting their homes into shops, stands, and small businesses of all kinds. 

Join us as we explore the uncanny, kaleidoscopic streets of Fusterlandia and meet the Cuban people who bring it to life.
