Erik Ravelo is a Cuban artist that threads all physical spectrum’s of love. His latest series Lana Sutra is sponsored by United Colors of Benetton. The artist crosses borders by branching out on the diversity of culture, humanity and uniting us as one. “I’m a human being and I don’t believe in borders. I think the world belongs to everyone born on Earth. This is my planet, our planet. No man is an island. Yes, I was born on Cuba but, above all, I was born on Planet Earth. I like to think that Lana Sutra talks about universal love which cancels diversity.” -Erik Ravelo
A woman-of-color who writes poetry or paints or dances or makes movies knows there is no escape from race or gender when she is writing or painting. She can’t take off her color and sex and leave them at the door or her study or studio. Nor can she leave behind her history. Art is about identity, among other things, and her creativity is political.
