Pedro Mendez and the greatness of making people laugh

With the personal exhibition Pedro el Grande, by the cartoonist Pedro Mendez Suarez, founder of the Melaito Supplement, the XIX International Exhibition of Graphic Humor was inaugurated on Wednesday in Santa Clara; an exposition that it can also be found at the Agesta Forum of the UNEAC in Villa Clara.

Pedro, the founding father of the Melaito Supplement, the patriarch of a caste of graphic humorists who has made a career in the center of the country, returned to us this December with the greatness of his cartoons.

With a return to his strokes and his charismatic communicator lineage, the XIX International Exhibition of Graphic Humor began, an event that for almost two decades has carried his creative seal.

The exhibition compiles the most recent works of the cartoonist, who recovered from a stroke that a few years ago limited the mobility of his right hand. It brings back his innate sympathy and, most importantly, the joy of knowing it active despite the obstacles.

The exhibition marks the starting point of three days designed to enjoy of the graphic humor of Cuba and of the world, whose norm is the plurality of the themes and the styles.
