By Antonio Paneque Brizuela

Havana, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) Cuban farmer and painter Rogelio Fundora, several of whose works centered the Cuban celebration of the World Food Day, thanked today the recognition of FAO to development and the promotion of his art.

I was particularly impressed by the link between art and agriculture which appreciated in my work the representative in Cuba of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Theodor Friedrich, said Fundora.

His appreciation for my exhibition AlimentArte (FoodArt) in the speech to mark October 16, the World Food Day, reaffirmed my double condition of farmer and painter, he declared to Prensa Latina.

The farmer who paints is how the artist born in the province of Mayabeque, in 1972 is known As an artist I recreate artistically my rural world, but also in my canvasses there is a call to produce food crops, said Fundora.

The exhibition was inaugurated Wednesday in the Club Habana of this capital sponsored by FAO and is composed by seven paintings with rural motives of his life and family.

Fundora has produced 40 personal and collective exhibitions and his works are in private collections in Venezuela, Mexico, Italy, Spain, Puerto Rico, France, Germany and the United States.
