I had the great fortune of seeing this show while vacationing in Traverse City last week; I was overwhelmed by the talent presented in the paintings. While it appears that "Boro" has received much notoriety, Mr.Aquino is certainly a true gem of an artist who has mastered a sublime balance of skill,imagination, and creativity. I have no doubts he will become a well known name in the art world.
Thank you Xylo for bringing us this phenomenal show!

I realized I had mistakenly written the word "notoriety" in reference to Mr. Raul Boro Rodgriguez I meant to say the following regarding the show. My apologizes to this great artist.

I had the great fortune of seeing this show while vacationing in Traverse City last week; I was overwhelmed by the talent presented in the paintings. While it appears that "Boro" has already received much recognition, Mr.Aquino is certainly a true gem of an artist who has mastered a sublime balance of skill,imagination, and creativity. I have no doubts he will become a well known name in the art world.
Thank you Xylo for bringing us this phenomenal show!

El chancho"(so called by his fellows due to his odor similar to boiled kidneys, due to his poor hygiene and lack of bathing or showering) che guevara was the communist pig that gave the firing squad to many innocent Cubans and took great delight in doing so. He was a racist and particularly enjoyed humiliating the Cuban negroes & mulatoes as well as the native Amerindian Mexicans whom he despised and made no effort to conceal while he was in Mexico.
Since he was a commander just like fidel, and was bolder than fidel, he enjoyed great power. fidel did not like the competition so he send him off on mission to Bolivia, where he was killed as fidel expected. This gave the revolution a martyr, while removing the competition, as well as producing an icon for the revolution.
It is said by those that found che, that he said: "Don't shoot, don't shoot I'm che & I'm worth more alive than dead, don't shoot" The soldiers that found him laughed & told him to say his last prayers, he cursed God, begged, cried, made offers to his captors, whined, wet his pants, soiled his pants, sobbed, BANG! Justice was done!
He who had killed so many, and took so much delight in doing it, died like the coward he was!
Good riddance, the stinking "chancho" is dead!
**********What few people know is that while he claimed the title Doctor while he lived in Cuba, he never graduated from Medical School. The reason his fellow revolutionaries called him "che" was originally to denigrate him, because they refused to call him doctor or commandante, since those close to him looked down on him. The nickname stuck, and since in the Cuban jargon the word is unknown, it readily identified him. The people of Argentina use this word very liberally just as the Americans use the word "dude" or "man" or "guy". The myth is that he was a guerrilla expert, facts are that he never, not once, carried out a successful guerrilla activity.] The skeleton of his hands is in Cuba. His dismembered body lays at the bottom of an undisclosed outhouse somehere in Bolivia.
