Blacks & Latinos
Novoa is proposing Blacks & Latinos, a flag measuring 38” x 60.” The project is in line with his work, which draws on the aesthetics of power, taking social history as its main subject.
Novoa is a visual artist from Holguín, Cuba. He has lived in Miami since 1995. He studied at the National School of Art in Havana, Cuba, as well as Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. In his work, Novoa researches symbolic representations in architecture, graphic design, and propaganda, such as recognizable city icons, monuments, institutional heraldry, or official graphics. His work is meant to become an instrument of social and historical analysis. Novoa also tries to look in the other direction––the community––for an account of the multifaceted crisis in the United States, such as the events caused by the need to restore a legal government and validate civil rights. In 2019, he exhibited “La Forma del Tiempo” at La Acacia Galería in Havana.
