Born outside of Havana, Cuba in 1891, Felipe Jesus Consalvos was a Cuban-American artist who emigrated to Miami around 1920 eventually settling in New York and finally Philadelphia where he died around 1960. Cansalvos worked for much of his life as a cigar roller and
extrapolated the vernacular tradition of cigar band collage to a highly sophisticated practice.
His entire body of work, approximately 750 surviving collages on paper, found photographs, musical instruments,
furniture and unexpected surfaces, was discovered in 1980.
The work has been exhibited in Among Messages and Magic: 100 Years of Collage and Assemblage in American Art at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, WI, (2008-09) and Caribbean: Crossroads
