  1. Hell of a lot better then Shep’s work lately!

  2. Who in their right mind would want to hang that idiot on their wall?

  3. Clueless wannabe liberal hipsters would buy and display this idiot murderer commie on their wall.

  4. I like this one a lot. Vive la revolution!

  5. I like what ernesto stands for.. Hes a good kid, with really good aspirations. I also like that u can see che in the corner of the hat. Without Che, Fidel would have never been as successful. But he was and is a mass murderer, who should never be followed.

    For example, did u know there is only one author in Cuba.. Fidel Castro.. Try reading his literature, and i would kill myself!!

  6. this is sad. nothin’ id love more than to have a commie on my wall! ugh.

  7. as soon as cuba is liberated, i’m going to open a medical marijuana store.

  8. He may be a murderer and a tyrant, but an interesting man none the less
    I’m fascinated by Hitler and his character; however I still believe that he was a monster…

  9. That’s curiosity is human nature, Matt.

    Despite the subject matter, this is definitely better than what Shep has been putting out lately. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw this post.

  10. I know there is the affiliation and history b/t Ernesto and Shep but his style seems like it mirrors Sheps a little too closely?

  11. Fidel is such a cool guy, he is so interesting :

    Cuba is the world’s biggest prison for journalists and free expression is banned. The regime carefully processes the news it feeds to its citizens and tolerates no independent press. The government has a contradictory position on the Internet. It trains thousands of students in the new technologies (official sources say some 30,000 are currently receiving training). But it prevents the vast majority of the population from having online access. The authorities have gone as far as to call the Internet “the great disease of 21st century” because it feeds its users with “counter-revolutionary” information. But it is also essential for Cuba’s economic development, as telecommunications minister Ignacio González Planas keeps repeating.

    Cuba is one of the world’s 10 most repressive countries as regards online free expression. The Internet is reserved for the ruling elite. But even the privileged few usually have access only to an Intranet specially created and filtered by the authorities.

    Cubans have found ways to get round the government’s ubiquitous censorship, by buying Internet access on the black market or sharing the few authorised connections. The government nonetheless severely punishes any “illegal” use of the Internet. The island’s courts moreover increasingly use a new charge against dissidents : “counter-revolutionary” Internet use.

  12. This is way better that Shep lately…

  13. Well, if you were to base it solely on stats, Fidel is as much of a mass murderer as Lyndon Johnson was in Vietnam. You can’t compare him to Hitler, that’s just stupid and ignorant. When you also look at his record as a leader, he has done plenty of great things for his country.

    DMS, to suggest that Cuba has no other writers is completely ridiculous. They’ve have a rich history of poets, playwrights, novelists, writers… etc. And maybe you should try to read one of his books. You might actually find it to be quite intellectual and engaging.

  14. Oh and Cubans make about $20 a month, that Fidel is so dreamy!

  15. Strike that

  16. Now I don’t know much, but wasn’t the Castro revolution an attempt by the “poor folks” to overthrow the ruling, rich elite?

    How’d you like to try to exist as a nation where your closest neighbor (who happens to be quite powerful) does everything short of invading your country to make sure you fail?

    I’ve never been to Cuba. Anyone?

  17. Tom W.. Have u ever been to Cuba? My friends from Germany went there 2 months ago and went to the library: there is only one author (fidel castro). But that is also a state run organization.

    I also understand that there are many ways for other writers like Ramón Barquín, Nicolás Guillén, Jose Barreiro and Jose Marti to distribute their work. They produce wonderful work; and the work of an oppressed population usually tends to be wonderfully insightful.

    Also, i understand that there have been a huge number or writers in Cuban history. People write everyday..New writers are inspired everyday. I can hope nothing more than that they continue their paths to voice their opinions. Thats the right of everyone in the world.. (unfortunately not legally in some places)

  18. DMS, you should do some better research. I’ve personally not been to Cuba (yet) but as a Canadian, I have many friends who go on a regular basis. If you want some information on their libraries, why not read this article:
    http://www.zmag.org/znet/viewArticle/8127
    Some insight on what services they provide as well as how the US State Department has tried to meddle in their affairs (in regards to libraries). Did you know that Cuba has one of the highest literacy rates in the world? Higher than the US.
    I will admit freely that there is much oppression still rampant in Cuba. They’ve got a terrible record of imprisoning the opposition, journalists and artists who speak out against the government. And, you could also argue that their communist form of governing is also oppressive on many classes (specifically the elite). But, if you look at their record, and the fact that they’ve been able to run their country without any outside control (see Haiti, Jamaica, Dominican, Puerto Rico, etc.) and still be able to feed their populations (even with the extreme US embargo which coincidentally has been criticized by numerous human rights organizations for decades), I’d say they’ve done pretty well for themselves. If you want to discuss how there are boatloads of individuals who have tried to ‘escape’ the system and run the the US, I’m not sure you could look an any other poor country and tell me that the situation is any different.

  19. Ernie these prints are DOPE!!! The subject matter is provocative; but I love the style of your art. Keep up the amazing work.

  20. Jeez… must be a lot of Americans writing on here.
    Fidel is not a mass murderer. No more than any US president is anyway.

    Cuba is one of the only countries in the world to successfully give the USofA the middle finger and not be overthrown.

    Fidel’s story is a fascinating one, as is the history of Cuba. While they aren’t perfect (no one is), they do have decent healthcare, schooling and such. Imagine if the US didn’t do everything possible to try and make them impoverish and miserable.

    The cuban people are awesome, you should go visit them. They’ll lift your spirits.

    Well done Ernesto.

  21. Governments that the US has openly supported have much worse human rights records than that of Cuba, which makes it pretty obvious that the cues for sanctimonious “outrage” about Cuba is rooted only in the country’s unwillingness to cooperate with outside pressures.
    Remember that the US was home to COINTELPRO, as well as the current highest incarceration rate per capita.
    Repression is never excusable, but you know… glass houses, first stone, he who is without sin, etc.

  22. So many Castro apologists here. Say what you want about past and current US administrations,, there is still no place in the world I’d rather live than within the U.S. of A. I giggle every time someone brings up the myth of Cuban public healthcare :)

  23. 3D, where do you get your information? Therealcuba.com? The Cuban healthcare systems is respected all over the world for being decades ahead of any other in the Latin American world, not to mention the fact that life expectancy is higher than that of the US.

  24. I know enough to not like castro.
    just as ‘you’ read/listen/experience to make an interpretation—I do the same.
    but,
    I do like ernestos work…he is getting a response from his work!!

    robbr1

  25. Can someone please explain how this is anything different than what Shepard Fairey does? And don’t argue that he’s a “Studio Number One affiliate”, which makes it okay for him to make stuff that looks identical to Shepards. If anything, it makes it worse.

  26. “Tom W: 3D, where do you get your information? Therealcuba.com? The Cuban healthcare systems is respected all over the world for being decades ahead of any other in the Latin American world, not to mention the fact that life expectancy is higher than that of the US.”

    Sure, I agree. Cuban healthcare is pretty good,,, if you have money. And lots of it. Can we agree that Wiki, although not perfect, is a pretty basic, relatively unbiased, reliable source of info?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthcare_in_Cuba

    So without this Cuban healthcare myth being used as a crutch for your Castro apologist agenda what else do you have? Literacy rate? LOL Sure! Go ahead and admire this mass murdering thug because his country reads. Real strong argument there.

  27. “Cuba is one of the world’s 10 most repressive countries as regards online free expression. The Internet is reserved for the ruling elite. But even the privileged few usually have access only to an Intranet specially created and filtered by the authorities.”

    so what you’re saying is that if ernesto happened to live in cuba and was not apart of the “ruling elite”, he wouldn’t even be able to use the internet to promote his fidel print? oh, the irony…

  28. 3d, did you even read the Wiki article? Do you not understand that Cuba has universal healthcare for all citizens? (i.e. they don’t pay a cent)? In fact, in the US, it’s the rich and powerful who get the best healthcare, while the poor aren’t even able to afford prescription drugs. Sure, they aren’t allowed private healthcare, but that’s part of the system that curbs inequality. It’s not perfect, but at least it doesn’t discriminate.

  29. Tom W, if you’ll go back and read my post I was not drawing a direct comparison between Fidel Castro and Adolf Hitler. It was more of a general comment and not as literal as you obviously interpreted.

    **this post has been edited from it’s original format following a deep breath :)

  30. Matt, I see what you meant. :D My only point was that it’s hardly a good comparison. Regardless, this isn’t really the best forum for these discussions. It should be about the art, in which this case, I think Ernesto did an amazing job.

    “They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?”

    –Fidel Castro

  31. […] Here is an interesting link to comments on the print, ranging from its closeness to Studio Number One owner Shepard ‘Obey’ Fairey to the person being depicted and whether people feel comfortable putting such a portrait on their wall. […]

  32. Finally something remotely ok from Shep

    :P

  33. yeah, people. try to sum up the world in 6 bars, eh? sigh.

    to make it short: having ANY world leader on your wall or shirt makes you look like an idiot.

    apart from that ferris bueller said it best when he said:
    I do have a test today, that wasn’t bullshit. It’s on European socialism. I mean, really, what’s the point? I’m not European. I don’t plan on being European. So who gives a crap if they’re socialists? They could be fascist anarchists, it still doesn’t change the fact that I don’t own a car. Not that I condone fascism, or any ism for that matter. Isms in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon: “I don’t believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.” Good point there. After all, he was the Walrus. I could be the Walrus, but I’d still have to bum rides off of people.

  34. All I need to know of Castro is that people have been trying to swim off that island as fast as they can for 40 years. I also lived around Maimi for a couple of years and Cuban imagrents did not have many kind words for him.

  35. If you’re going to call Castro a mass murderer, I hope you’re willing to say the same of George Bush, Sharon, Rumsfeld, Pinochet, Suharto, Clinton, Kissinger, and the list goes on.

  36. Seriously. The only reason anyone gives a crap about Castro’s human rights records is because they’re being prompted to by a bunch of angry, neoliberal Cold Warriors. We should have seen the same outrage over the invasion of East Timor (US authorized), the Shah of Iran, and the countless murders/imprisonments in South/Central America in the 70’s and 80’s. But those dictators were all on the “right” side philosophically, so it was okay.

  37. And just to be clear, pointing out double standards and moral discrepancies does not a Castro apologist make.

  38. america has so much blood on its hands its a joke – past – present – and most likely the future too – thats a grand shame

  39. FLAMEWAR ON OMG POSTERS.

    Sounds like this discussion should be on fark or something.

  40. this board need a daniel danger release badly !!

  41. Rice cooker war !!!

  42. why random time? His Che print hasn’t even sold out yet!

  43. Tom W.
    Did YOU not read the link? How in the world did YOU read that link and come away with that?

    Yeah. Everyone in Cuba has healthcare. BUT (and this is a big but) unless you have alot of money you will get the same crappy Cuban healthcare that everyone else gets. Better than nothing right?

    From the Wiki page:
    Former leading Cuban neurosurgeon and dissident Dr Hilda Molina asserts that the central revolutionary objective of free, quality medical care for all has been eroded by Cuba’s need for foreign currency. …the Cuban Government established mechanisms designed to turn the medical system into a profit-making enterprise. This creates an enormous disparity in the quality of healthcare services between foreigners and Cubans leading to a form of tourist apartheid. blah blah..

    i suggest you go back and read the entire link about the myth of Cuban healthcare. Not just the parts that make you happy.

    I’m debating with a Castro apologist on a poster blog. ROFL!!

  44. @ rata

    nah, the Joker said it best when he said:

    “This town needs an enema!”

  45. i keep seeing people writing that cuba has the best this and the highest that, compared to the US.

    They have like 20 people there. I dont think the ratios would really match up.

  46. Blah. On a positive note, the print shows good technique. The subject matter is unfortunate.

  47. LOL I’d love anyone that defends cuba to go move there. Seriously, we will even start a website and accept donations to pay for you move. And we can document it on the internet, that is if we hear from you after moving there lol.

  48. Politics aside, this is simply unoriginal garbage. This guy is such a hack.

  49. Dude – Some of us are not Americans and we have been there.
    The foods shit.

    On a cool note when a lady becomes preggers they leave the husband and enter a house full of other pregnant woman – What a great support system! What a great idea.
    Love that!

  50. a jolly board!

  51. Subject matter aside, this is a blatant rip off of Shepard Fairey’s work. Awful.

  52. “LOL I’d love anyone that defends cuba to go move there. Seriously, we will even start a website and accept donations to pay for you move. And we can document it on the internet, that is if we hear from you after moving there lol.”

    thank you. are there any takers out there?

    and agreed, even if the subject matter wasn’t a joke — the print would still be no good because as its already been pointed out, its completely unoriginal.

  53. OMG is hot right now!!! Good to see.
    Cuba’s a great topic and deserves as much discussion and scrutiny as can be thrown it’s way.
    I will remind you guys that no matter how you feel about Cuba and the Castro regime using the term “commie” in a derogatory way to mean “communist” is not only short sighted and ignorant it’s also dangerous, as are most positions of blatant misinformation.

    “Communism, in the Marxian sense refers to a classless, stateless and oppression-free society where decisions on what to produce and what policies to pursue are made democratically, allowing every member of society to participate in the decision-making process in both the political and economic spheres of life…”

    At no point did Karl Marx call for totalitarian regimes and oppression, quite the opposite actually. The gross perversion of “communism” that is places like Cuba, China, and former Soviet Union are NOT the utopia Marx envisioned.

    No, communism would never work outside of a laboratory.
    No, Cuba is not and has never been an actual communist nation.
    And no, communism is not the evil thing some of you goobers think it is. “Totalitarian dictatorship” is the term you’re probably searching for :)

  54. I’ve been to Cuba and the amount of misinformation in the US never ceases to amaze.

    First off, who exactly has Fidel Castro “murdered”? You must be referring to the few hundred murderers and torturers executed after trial at the end of the Revolution? These were the people responsible for the 20,000 real political deaths that occurred under the Batista dictatorship (Fidel, BTW, was initially lukewarm about executions – but the vast majority of the Cuban people demanded justice). Since then, Cuba is a rare country in the region where there have been no history of torture, disappearances or death squads.

    On health care, it is beyond debate that Cuba has one of the best systems in the developing world (and tops or matches the US in many categories). Yes, tourists come and pay for care in Cuba (many Presidents too) – but the money gets funneled back into Cuban health care.

    You can also run down the line of notable Cuban achievements – literacy, education, culture (music, film, literature), lack of drug problem, lack of homelessness, child nutrition, jobs for all, health for all, sports, opportunities for people with disabilities, bio-med, ect… All this despite a crippling US embargo, a travel ban, an immoral migration policy (that allows in any Cuban but denies any Haitian), an intense media propaganda war, millions for regime change ($20 million this year in Obama’s budget), etc.

    Fidel Castro is a hero to millions of people all over the planet. Love him or hate him, he is a legend who has outsmarted and outlasted nearly everyone and is a rare successful example of defiance. Beyond Cuba, he deserves credit for his role in helping to ending apartheid in Southern Africa (by battling the CIA and racist South African mercenaries in Angola). Nelson Mandela awarded Fidel his country’s highest honor. Cuba was just elected to lead the “non-aligned movement” of 118 countries. Cuba routinely gets votes of 185-3 at the UN to overturn the illegal, immoral US embargo… Fidel has made Cuba box far higher than its weight class..

    Fidel is hated by the US Govt because of this – an example of defiance.

  55. looks like Liam Neeson as Castro :)

  56. I like this piece. I think the original mixed media on paper would be amazing, but this looks like a nice print.

  57. I was actually going to ask someone to post some documentation of Castro’s alleged murderous history. Not to be a smartass or anything, either. I would like to see where these claims come from (other than the State Department).
    I wonder if Afghanis currently regard the content of Shepard’s “HOPE” print as “unfortunate.”

  58. Fidelito Castro is sooo sexy man…

  59. As a child of Cuban exiles, the amount of ignorance and Castro apologists on this thread saddens me. Anyone asking for proof of murders sounds like a Holocaust denier to me. Cubans in exile, those who lost everything when Castro betrayed his revolution and had to leave their homes, their property, their families, their everything, and come to a new country with nothing but the clothes on their backs to start new, learn a new language, learn a new trade just to get by and provide for their families… well, these cubans will compare castro to hitler without batting an eyelash. would you buy and hang a hitler stencil on your wall? castro is a totalitarian despot. he OWNS cuba, and everyone and everything on the island. anyone who disagreed with him was locked away as a dissident, or put up against the wall and shot. my grandfather was forced to work 3 years hard labor on a sugar plantation in cuba before he was allowed to leave. if cuba is so great, then why do so many cubans risk death on makeshift boats every year just to get out? i wish anyone who has a high opinion of castro could come down to miami and have a conversation with the many cubans who live here now and lived through castro’s “revolution.” try to reason with them about all the wonderful things castro is doing for cuba and the world.

  60. Having just returned from Cuba after two full weeks on the island interacting with citizens of cities like La Habana, Cienfuegos, Holguin, Varadero, Matanzas and many little small towns in between I can genuinely say that the people of Cuba are some of the most amazing humans on this planet. Their charisma and sincere concern for each other is beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. It put the small towns in Mexico which I adore to shame. But like in any other country on this earth, people are simply living their lives. Sure, some Cubans told me they would like to travel or temporarily live elsewhere but the majority were content with their lives. The tangible unity they have for their country is unbelievable. They know their lives are not luxurious but they use that because they know they’re setting examples for their fellow countrymen as well as the rest of the world.

    My family and friends who hold an unsound rancor for their way of life feel pity for the country and the Cuban people because they think they’re poor and malnourished but my experience was nothing but conflicting to those thoughts. We misperceive their modest communal lifestyle as “poor” but the reality is that other countries, such as mine, live in excess with the luxury of “whatever we want whenever we want.” We don’t fully understand the harm we are causing ourselves and the rest of the world with our appetite for glut.

    Fidel Castro represents and symbolizes a victorious realization of struggle and responsibility for what he believed is right for his country and his people.

    The ganas manifested by Fidel, Che, Camilo and everyone else responsible for the Cuban Revolution is beyond question. That kind of mentality is what Hecho Con Ganas honors. Dismissing fear of responsibility and failure and taking it upon yourself to do what you believe is moral and necessary.

    “Revolution…is changing everything that should change.” – Fidel Castro

  61. I like the print a lot. Much better than Shep’s work of IMO. The problem for me is that I really don’t want to celebrate Castro or anything about him, especially at this price.

  62. @ Juan Luis Garcia. excellent.

    @ Everyone else.. Ernesto is young, and still very fresh in the art world. Given time an artist’s style, technique, and subject inevitably evolves. The fact that this mere 23 year old is producing work at this caliber, sponsored by Montana Paint and represented by White Walls Gallery in San Francisco –
    (http://www.whitewallssf.com/artists/ernesto-yerena/ )
    conjures excitement and anticipation for what is to come. In the mean time let’s not hate too much while he establishes his style and grows out of that spectacular shadow.
    http://tiny.cc/ernestoyerena

  63. I wonder what artist this was inspired by?

  64. Anytime anyone compares anything to Hitler, it’s usually a good idea to stop listening to them.

  65. The immense ignorance displayed in ‘conventional wisdom’ by some U.S. Americans is quite embarrassing. “Commie” this and “Commie” that. *rolls eyes violently*

    *signed, a U.S. combat veteran for several foreign-soil wars

    E

  66. This is not okay to charge $100, let alone any money, for a print of a mass murderer. Whoever thinks that this is cool, just like people who wear Che shirts around, should look again.

    And those people who are trying to justify Fidel’s and Che’s mass murders, and comparing them to LBJ in Vietnam…. check your head.

    If you are a communist lover go ahead and hang this print on your American wall that you feel safety within knowing that the leader of your nation isn’t going to come to your door and kill you with his hands.

  67. @Wowzers: if it’s not ok to sell the print, and it’s not ok to give the print away, what alternative are you proposing here?
    Please oh please tell me you’re advocating censorship on an website dedicated to ART. The irony would more than make up for the time I just wasted reading your comment.
    Ooooo, maybe we should round up ANY artwork we find objectionable and burn it in a gigantic bonfire in town square! That’ll teach these commie bastards to mess around with our freedoms!!!

    Long Live USA!!! :D

  68. Wowzers, the cold war ended twenty years ago.

  69. Also, will someone please make a Henry Kissinger art print. I would like a mass murder whose portrait is okay to hang on my wall.

  70. @ justin

    I’m working on Kiss of Death: the Henry Kissinger Portrait
    i’ll let you know when it’s complete

  71. prints are now on sale
    http://hechoconganas.com/hcg-store.html

  72. @ Iron Jaiden: Did I say anything about censorship? are you nuts – i am def not in favor of censorship, that would be taking away our FREEDOMS.

    All I was suggesting was don’t make the print in the first place. Marketing a mass murderer is not cool. Neither are the Che shirts that you see everyone wearing, and the only reason most of them wear them is because its a fad and they think its cool.

    I’m saying do a little homework before you go endorsing mass murderers.

  73. @Wowzers: I was asking what your logical conclusion would be given your disapproval of the print being sold or even given away at all.
    In suggesting that the print not be made in the first place you’re calling on an artist to practice self-censorship, which is still a form of censorship.
    No censorship is needed here. Art does not need to “endorse” or “promote” a person or agenda to depict said person or agenda.
    I would ask you to stop for a moment and imagine a world where artists refuse to depict questionable and possibly offensive material.

    *shiver* :)

  74. Bort77, I ask for proof of murders because they do not exist. Give me the name of just one Cuban “murdered” by the Cuban Government since the Revolution and I’ll shut up. Obama has already killed more innocents than Fidel ever did.

    We know Cubans in Miami don’t like Fidel. They, by and large, were the white elites who ran the county before the people took it back. Of course there is resentment that their 3rd and 4th homes were confiscated (2 homes were allowed after the Revolution) or their 1,000 acre farm was broken up and given to the peasant farmers (a max of 67 acres was permitted; Fidel’s own parents lost some land to their workers).

    The argument of “why do so many want to leave then” is BS. First off, Cubans have always come to the US – it’s 90 miles away. But on a per capita basis, Cubans represent a far smaller % of the migrant population than before the Revolution. For example, in 2009, there were nearly 3 times as many people caught at sea by the US Coast Guard from the island of Hispanola (Haiti and DR) than Cuba (I just checked USCG stats). But they don’t make the evening news when they arrive like Cubans do. So fewer Cubans arrive than many other nationals, despite the distance AND the fact that Cubans alone are given automatic US residency status (citizenship) upon reaching US shores. Could you imagine if any other people were given that right? Poor countries would simply empty out… Add the embargo to the mix and it is easy to conclude that US policy is the biggest factor in Cuban migration.

    And to the person who said that Fidel is the only author allowed in Cuba or Cuban libraries or whatever, is completely full of crap. Even the reports o censorship are off base. The American Library Association sent a delegation to Cuba with a list of 20 so-called banned books (as reported by the Miami crowd) and found that most of them were completely available. The list of distinguished Cuban authors is as long as any other country in the hemisphere.

    Cuba is the only place in Latin America where you won’t find children working on the streets and starving to death. Cuba is the only place in Latin America that offers 100% free quality education and health care. Yeah, they don’t make a lot of money, but that leaves out the fact that everything is free. When that is factored in, the per capita income in Cuba is over 10k (more than most in the region).

  75. Let’s try to remember the US is more or less completely isolated with this embargo business. In Canada, you see “Visit Cuba!” billboards and bus ads. It’s fucking hilarious because where I come from (the US of A), the very notion is regarded as borderline suicidal. Thanks, corporate media!!
