Artist recreates famous painting “The Last Supper,” but with Cuban leaders

Alejandro Daniel García, a young Cuban migrant living in New Jersey, USA, has attracted admiration on the networks with his Last Supper-inspired but Cuban leaders.

García, who studied advertising with a focus on multimedia production, created the evocative work using digital drawing technology, without the help of artificial intelligence.

The drawing, which captures the decadence and gluttony inherent in what the artist sees as the final stages of Castroism, is accompanied by a biblical quote.

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, hypocrites! You travel by land and sea to gain a follower, and when you have succeeded, you make him a person who deserves hell twice as much as you do.” Matthew 23:15,” the young man wrote Facebook, clearly alluding to the protagonists of his work.

Raúl Castro takes center stage at García's dinner, accompanied by his daughter Mariela Castro and his grandson Raúl Guillermo Rodríguez Castro, popularly known as “El Cangrejo.”

The leaders of the new nomenclature such as President Miguel Díaz-Canel and Prime Minister Marrero can also be seen in the picture, but also those of the old guard such as Ramiro Valdés or José Ramón Machado Ventura.

Finally, other figures associated with the regime's leadership can also be seen in the picture, such as the official journalist Randy Alonso and Díaz-Canel's wife, Lis Cuesta.

It is not the first time that young artists have been inspired by the regime's leaders to criticize the situation in which Cubans have found themselves.

In 2022 the digital artist Ricky Castillo was inspired by the British writer's satirical novel Animal Farm George Orwell, to caricature the leaders of Cuba.

The artist published montages of allegorical pig sculptures based on the novel on his networks and accompanied them with fragments from it show the political reality of Cuba.
