Wifredo Oscar de la ConcepciĆ³n Lam y Castilla (b. December 8, 1902, Sagua La Grande, Cuba; d. September 11, 1982, Paris), better known as Wifredo Lam, was a Cuban artist who sought to portray and revive the enduring Afro-Cuban spirit and culture. Inspired by and in contact with the some of the most renowned artists of the twentieth century, Lam melded his influences and created a unique style, which was ultimately characterized by the prominence of hybrid figures. Though he was predominantly a painter, he also worked with sculpture and ceramics in his later life.
