I love Miami, Ocean Drive, Art Deco buildings. I love Latin Salsa, Merengue, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba and Conga. And the food…. I love the food!  The only thing missing in our lives is Tony Mendoza’s Art. When you experience the whimsical, humorous and vibrant colors of the vignettes in Miami’s Latin City Scape you will want to bring Miami and the Latin flavors home!

Born in New York City to Cuban parents, Mendoza grew up in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami where you can see the impact the Cuban influence has in his art.   You can almost hear the sounds of the Rumba music coming out of the buildings, the hustle and bustle of every day life. You can hear the children’s laughter and smell the tobacco and cuban cafe!  Come along for sneak peek into this amazing Artist’s work.
