Over the last year the Indigo Arts website has remained active despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume operations but must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  

Note:  USPS has been so slow that we still recommend avoiding it entirely, at least for the present.  Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail can take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.
Please stay safe in these difficult times.  
We wish you all a healthier, saner and more civil 2021.

Born - 1966; Mella, Santiago de Cuba province, Cuba
Biography - A celebrated member of the 'Bayate' group of self- taught artists in the Village of Mella, near Santiago de Cuba. His paintings depict the events of daily life in small-town and countryside Cuba. He has been in numerous group shows in Cuba and the United States, as well as one-man shows in Santiago. His first visit to Indigo Arts Gallery was for the Por Un Mundo Mejor exhibition in October and November 2002.

His father, Luis Rodriguez Arias, and known as "el Maestro", to distinguish him from his son, is also a member of the group. Both men were featured in the June 11, 2000 New York Times article, "Ebullient Cubans Make a Lot Out of a Little".
