Painted plaster objects (Detail)
Yero has developed a »Post-Pop-Art« style. He uses the method and aesthetic of the kitschy plaster decorations which are sold in Cuba, and found in many of its apartments. In that he shows the mass-produced symbols and the sign of official propaganda in this vulgar form, he clearly illustrates the senseless steroetypical nature of the Cuban revolutionary-rhetoric.
