Biography

 Born in Havana, Cuba, 1987. In 2002 was admitted to the renowned National Academy of Fine Art “San Alejandro”. The common presence of political propaganda in Cuba made him perceive and embrace the role of the artist as communicator, but in his own aesthetic and political terms. That growing interest led him to choose Printmaking as his Major, but his education at the prestigious institution was interrupted when he emigrated to Miami with his family. In 2009 he enrolls the Visual Arts Degree program at New School of the Arts (NWSA) in Miami, Florida. The ample exposure to digital media while studying Graphic Design at NWSA had a tremendous effect in his practice, currently exploring new depths of the the digital iconography of present times.
