A group of Venezuelan artists has contributed paintings of President Hugo Chavez to a new government-organized exhibit dedicated to the ailing leader, as the Washington Post reports.

The exhibit includes portraits of Chavez with his mother and daughter, as well as a painting of a saluting Chavez superimposed on a map of South America.

The exhibit is titled “Chavez Lives and Will Prevail.” The 23 works also include two photographs.

The exhibit opened Wednesday in the Caracas Museum located in city mayor’s office and will be on display for two weeks.

Chavez has been fighting an unspecified type of pelvic cancer and remains in Cuba more than five weeks after he underwent surgery. He hasn’t spoken or appeared publicly since the operation.
