Silfredo practices the traditional Cuban religion of Santeria ("the way of the saints"). Oghun is the orisha of war, technology, creativity, and art. The passion and aggression of Silfredo's youth are channeled into his artwork where, invoking Oghun, he enters a dance that helps him explore ideas in paint about literal and metaphoric slavery, risk, the development of civilization and his life in San Diego.
