WILFREDO LAM
(Cuba, 1902 - 1982)

Wifredo Lam is a major figurative artist, responsible for introducing the expressive force of Afro-Caribbean spiritual traditions into modern painting. Lam's fascination with voodoo, trance states, and the rituals of spiritual transformation, adds a new poetic dimension to the iconography of Surrealism.
