Oslo Caribbean Feeling is all about Caribbean culture, in music, dance and other art forms. We are proud to welcome artist Lázaro Betancourt back to show more of his work this year. First time Lázaro presented his art at the festival, was in 2016.
Lázaro is a Cuban artist making beautiful carvings on precious wood. During his residency in Norway, he has also started to create painting with various afro-cultural themes and color combinations. He will also bring some of his painting to the exhibition the coming weekend, a part from his wooden sculptures.
Make sure to visit Vinterhagen some time Saturday or Sunday between 13 and 18 hrs. His pieces are also for sale.
