Amazing detail - nothing is left untouched. Pure love from this artist spreads from his home to his garden and overflows to the neighborhood beyond. He's especially big on eyes and hearts.

Very colorful and imaginative place to visit. It won't take more than 20 minutes to see the artist work not only at his home but in the neighborhood. Mr. Fuster is usually there working or hanging around, we specifically saw him in this pool having a beer while we were looking around his house hehe. Worth a quick visit.

If you are a fan of Gaudi, you will love visiting Fuster's home and neighbourhood. It is covered with tiles - really hard to describe. His tiles and paintings are for sale.

This small residential area in middle class Havana has been transformed by the artist into a riot of colour and movement with his mosaic creation. Fences, facades, roofing, doors walls of houses, seats and street poles - nothing escapes the addition of colour and texture. A must see

I've been to Jaimanitas often, and the neighborhood that Fuster has decorated is beautiful. Go, park, and take some time to wander the area and talk with the residents in addition to his home. The area is especially interesting in the evening, when the actual home is closed.

A hidden pearl in Havana, definitely a must see!! We were so lucky to meet Mr Fuster in person. He is definitely someone that makes a fifference to Havana and it's people. A spot that was extremely impressive, beautiful and that will be remembered by all of us. Also kids will adore this place.

Very interesting and eclectic home and art studio of one of Cuba's current favored artists. The art is not cheap and it is unclear if Jose Fuster would be as famous if he was a dissident and not a post-revolutionary patriot (methinks not). Worth a visit, much of the neighborhood (walls, sidewalk benches, etc.) is done in interesting ceramics. And... More

This is a magical place which has been developed by Fustar over many many years. There is an incredible amount of detail to the tile work and structure, and it just blew me away. I began to think of how difficult it must have been for the artist to find tiles especially during the special period, and it just bogles... More

This is an incredible, spectacular display of amazing mosaics--not just this studio itself, but the whole area, where José Fuster has decorated neighborhood homes at no charge. He even did the local bus stop. You can see from the photos that his work is whimsical and vibrant. Allow yourself enough time to look closely at his many sculptures and paintings;... More
