On our way to visit one of the garages for our Mechanic video, we wound up in a suburb of Havana famous for its street art. Over the course of a few blocks, we saw the murals and sculptures that tell the story of Cuba and its creative people. I was so impressed with the imagination and resourcefulness of the artists, using materials in unconventional ways. We saw lots of Cuban flags and images of Che Guevara as the artists use their work to preserve their history.
