Roberto Fabelo

Roberto Fabelo (born 1951 Camagüey, Cuba) is a contemporary Cuban artist. He is both a painter and illustrator.

Born in Guáimaro, Camagüey,[1] Fabelo studied at The National Art School and at the Superior Art Institute of Havana. He was a professor and a jury member for very important national and international visual arts contests. The Cuban state awarded him a medal for National Culture and the Alejo Carpentier medal for his outstanding artistic career.

His work is exhibited at the Museo Nacionalde Bellas Artes in Havana,[2] and in the Cuban embassy in Mexico.[3] His 2009 sculpture of a group of human-headed cockroaches can be found climbing one of the walls of the Havana Fine Arts Museum, entitled Survival.[4] He also illustrated a 2007 edition of Gabriel García Márquez's novel Cien años de soledad.[5] He was described by the Dallas Morning News in 2002 as "one of Cuba's premier artists", with high demand for his paintings in the United States and elsewhere.[6]
