Inspired by failing foreign policies such as the current trade embargo and the challenges of the Cuban people, Sanchez aims to create a dialogue between the US and Cuba that will promote economic and cultural exchange. His oil paintings are meticulously rendered with classical technique creating a realism that alludes to the present and presence. Sanchez excels at creating scenes of togetherness and social unity.
