Wilfredo Prieto, Beso

Beso consists of two stones, very big in dimension, united together side by side. Both are spherical in shape and touch in just one point, simulating a kiss. The presence of this artwork in a public park which hosts houses, offices and shopping centers, offers a link to the history of art and gardening.

Wilfredo Prieto was born in Sancti Spiritus (Cuba) in 1978, he studied in Havana at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (ISA). The artist create visual metaphors using common objects, through which the most trivial objects undergo a shift of meaning as often suggested by the titles. The artist operates a reevaluation of the objects, changing also the orientation of the viewer gaze. All is research is characterized by strong irony. Wilfredo Prieto realized many artworks conceived for public spaces.
