Net stroll: 18th of March 2012, Guerra de la Paz (Cuba)
Originally sourcing their materials from waste bins of second-hand goods in Miami, Guerra de la Paz is now widely known for their special sculptures — made from discarded items of daily life.
Cuban born American artists, Alain Guerra (1968) and Neraldo de la Paz (1955) are the collaborate duo behind the work and the team. Often using old clothing to build their sculptures — the message expressed with their recycled art is about the discard nature of our mass-produced lifestyles.

Guerra de la Paz works mainly in sculpture, installation and photography. Their work references the politics of modern conflict and consumerism alongside symbols of faith. They live and work in Miami and have been consistently producing collaboratively since 1996.
If you are wondering about the composite name, Guerra de la Paz (e. war of peace) it simply is a representation of the artists’s Cuban last names — even though it still might have a deeper meaning. And speaking about Cuba. Although it has been a while since I was in Havana, Che Guavara’s words are still as classic as they were back then. Fellows, closer and further;
¡ Hasta la victoria, siempre !
