Cuban-American artist Alexandr Mijares captures the zesty spirit of a guitar-strumming musician in ‘Cafecito con Guitarra.’ Mijare’s brush strokes are rapid and thick, lending the work an air of movement and music. The audience can almost hear his melody, as the figure’s frenetic fingers dance across the guitar’s strings, all the while, balancing a notoriously strong cortadito.
