José Luis Fariñas — Artista judío-cubano y cabalista/Jewish-Cuban and Kabbalistic Artist

The work of the Cuban-Jewish artist José Luis Fariñas will be featured in this blog. Besides being a friend of mine, José Luis is an internationally-known drawer and aquarellist. His work is complex, highly detailed and often hermetic. His work is influenced by Dürer, Bosch and Rembrandt. Figures from the Old Testament and Kabbalist themes regularly appear in his art.
