Cuban American artist Luis Cruz Azaceta addresses what author Alejandro Anreus calls the ?wounds and screams? of the human condition. Although Cruz Azaceta?s work is extensively exhibited and widely collected, this is the first book on the artist?s life and creations.

Anreus traces Cruz Azaceta?s career and explores the themes that are the focus of his singular art. Anreus discusses how the Cuban diaspora, above all, has shaped the artist and how the experience of exile has found expression through starkly forceful self-portraiture in many of his works. Anreus also examines the artist?s ongoing concern with current events. Cruz Azaceta has responded to national crises, such as the AIDS epidemic, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the devastation of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina, with graphically powerful paintings, mixed-media pieces, and installations.

Over the past four decades Cruz Azaceta has experimented with his visual vocabulary, moving from the flat, pop style of his early canvases, through neo-Expressionism, and into the abstraction of more-current work. His commentary on humanity, however, has not changed. His art continues to remind us that there are no easy solutions to the presence of violence and cruelty, exile and dislocation, and solitude and isolation.


Alejandro Anreus is professor of art history and Latin American and Latino studies at William Paterson University in New Jersey. He is the author of Orozco in Gringoland and coeditor and contributor to Ben Shahn and the Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti (Jersey City Museum, 2001); The Social and The Real; and Mexican Muralism: A Critical History. His articles and essays have appeared in Art Journal, Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies, Commonweal, Encuentro de la Cultura Cubana, and Third Text.

Chon A. Noriega is professor of film, television, and digital media and director of the Chicano Studies Research Center at UCLA.
