Heartfelt evocation of Antonio Perez Santos at the UNEAC of Villa Clara

From the Blue Patio of the UNEAC, headquarter of the artists of Villa Clara, where Tony opened the doors while traced the paths to the local art, culture, and love; a song to life was sung. On the birthday of our eternal Tony Perez Santos, many of those creators who shook his hands so many times, who accompanied his embrace and his gaze as a simple man, a sincere friend, returned to pay tribute to him.

Antonio Alberto Perez Santos, or just Tony, as everyone called him, would have turned 56 years old, and although fate decided that he would not be physically present among us, his memory has been kept in those who were very close to him and in others who were reached by his work in some way.

In order to commemorate his birthday, a tribute gala was held on Saturday night in honor to this beloved artist and art critic, who was also the president of the Provincial Committee of the provincial branch of the UNEAC in Villa Clara.

Aristides Vega, Yamil Diaz, Ensemble Raptus, Amilkar Chacon, Roxana Pineda and other members of the Trovuntivitis dedicated part of their work to a man who lived his life as a defender of art in the province and in the country. The writer Yamil Diaz expressed: The destiny of a sun is to shine for others, and so was the fate of our dear Tony.
