Cuban artist's home is his artwork

Beyond all the photographic clichés that abound in Havana, like antique cars and old men smoking cigars or bartenders making mojitos, there are still a few sights that can stop you in your tracks. 

The home of Cuban artist Lazaro Salsita is one of them.

Down some dusty street in Central Havana, passersby can’t help but marvel at the façade of this typical apartment building in the middle of the block.

Television and computer screens hang from the building along with typewriters and page after page of the country’s official newspaper, Granma.

Salsita, who is currently visiting the United States, has been creating his “recycled art” for many years and offers workshops for the neighborhood children.
