Yulier Rodriguez, a contemporary Cuban artist, pauses for a moment in his new studio to think about his painting. Yulier sells his art privately. He used to own a gallery, but the government forced his landlord to kick him out. Creating work with anti-government messages like he does is isolating, "I don't have many friends," he says. Now, Yulier sells his art under the table. His new studio is at a private location in Havana -- only his family and close friends know where it is. He plans to move into the back of his studio once his fiancee gives birth to their child.
