Jeff’s favorite Key West artist was Mario
Sanchez. He wrote the forward to “Mario Sanchez Before and After”.
Jeff just loved Mario’s work,
especially his model-T Fords so this one was dedicated to Mario and
Jeff admired Mario Sanchez’s folk art for it’s great sense of
artistic power, of individuality, and technical virtuosity with the
irrepressible, candid charm of the unschooled. In love with Key West
himself, he couldn’t help but be charmed by Mario the chronicler of
Key West history and cultures.
Mario's usual cast of colorful characters are his Cuban, Afro-Cuban,
Bahamian, Afro-Bahamian, Jewish, Chinese and Italian cigars rollers,
street vendors, fishermen, and the everyday common people he
preserved for history along with their nicknames and humorous antics
from the 1920’s and 30’s when he was a boy.
Considered the most important Cuban-American Folk Artist of the 20th
Century you can read more about Mario Sanchez
