In the series of art fairs that take place in South Florida, United States, between the end of one year and the beginning of the next, is already habitual having the presence of Cuban art, hand in hand with cultural promoters of the Island, as well as gallery owners from all over the globe. Among these Ramón Cernuda, who in his selection of modern and contemporary art reserves a space for Roberto Fabelo's work at every opportunity.
In December, Fabelo's pieces were exhibited in Art Miami during Art Basel week. From the commercial point of view, it was a success, and also considering the high degree of acceptance shown by art connoisseurs, new collectors and art lovers. Then, the 22nd edition of Art Palm Beach took place in West Palm Beach, between January 30th and February 2nd, and Art Wynwood was inaugurated in the city of Miami, and ran between February 11th and 15th. Art Wynwood is a relatively young fair, which this year celebrated its 9th edition, and which, in Cernuda's own opinion, has been growing steadily to become another essential event to meet, enjoy and acquire modern and contemporary art in the South Florida.

But Fabelo and his work seems to have the gift of ubiquity, when with a few days apart he stands out with his participation in ARCO Madrid. Two very different pieces were exhibited at the fair: a large format canvas from the series entitled "Dios Mío" and a drawing on metal, made on a kitchen saucepan.

At the opening of the Habano Festival, in Havana, a welcome cocktail was held in which the center of the celebrations was the auction of a work by Roberto Fabelo. The tradition of auctioning Fabelo's art in the Festival started several years ago. Habano Festival celebrated its 20th Anniversary. The piece auctioned on this occasion, titled "Ni'o'eperro", was adjudicated to the German businessman Roland Henning, with a hammer price of $ 170,000.00. The benefits from the sale were donated to the Cuban public health system. That night's celebrations closed with a concert by Isaac Delgado.
