Los Carpinteros
Dagoberto Rodriguez Sánchez (b. Caibarién, Las Villas, 1969)
Alexandre Arrechea Zambrano (b. Trinidad, Las Villas, 1970)
Marco Castillo Valdés (b. Camagüey, 1971)

Earning the generic label Los Carpinteros (The Carpenters) from their colleagues at the Instituto Superior de Arte, from which they graduated in 1994, Dagoberto Rodriguez, Alexandre Arrechea, and Marco Castillo have been working collaboratively since 1991. Among the most innovative and internationally celebrated contemporary Cuban artists, the collective often works with their hands, frequently sourcing everyday, domestic objects in their sculptures and drawings. Characterized by the use of humor, punning and metaphor, their work has been exhibited internationally and is in public and private collections worldwide.
