Novo Designs

A series of t-shirts and posters designed by Havana-based Cuban artist, Reynier Leyva Novo, inspired by contemporary ideology and Cuban political iconography. The Novo Anniversary Collection, a play on the hype surrounding the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, turns everyday fashion into a democratic and participatory arena. The hijacking of political propaganda for art, at the same time as the art is being hijacked for commodification, invites us to question the complex relationship between politics, art and capitalism. The fact that these commodified popular art forms were designed in the last bastion of socialism in the hemisphere (Cuba), and produced in the center of advanced industrial capitalism (USA) adds a layer of delicious irony to the polysemic collection.
