Islanders certainly aren’t afraid of a little color and this is carried
on in local art.
Museums and art galleries are scattered around the island, where,
amongst others, you can find exhibitions by the following artists:
RECYCLING WITH YUBI
Yubi Kirindongo is an internationally known artist whose strikingly
original creations come straight from the trash heap. Whether it’s
old car parts or remnants of industrial machinery, Yubi lives by the
motto “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” His home on
the west side of Willemstad doubles as a private gallery/museum
that you can visit by appointment only. You can also find his work
in the Alma Blou Gallery and the Curaçao Museum.
NENA: QUEEN OF BEAUTY
The late artist and former Miss Curaçao Nena Sanchez took
inspiration from the natural beauty of the island to create her
brightly colored canvasses. Find her paintings in Landhuis Jan Kok
overlooking the salt flats at Willibrordus and in her gallery in Punda.
