Carlos Guzmán was born in Havana in 1970. His artistic inclination surfaced early, leading to his admission to the Paulita Concepcion Elementary School of Visual Arts. At 15 he continued his artistic development at the San Alejandro Academy of Visual Arts, graduating in 1989. Guzmán now holds the title Professor of Fine Art, teaching at every academic level, even offering courses in wardrobe design for stage design students.
In addition to being heavily involved in his local art scene, exhibiting, donating work, and creating beautiful murals, Carlos has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions at prestigious galleries around the world. Places he has exhibited include Costa Rica, Panama, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Florida and Portugal.
Guzmán’s original painting style and technical mastery have made him an icon of modern Cuban art. Through his artwork Guzmán creates imaginary universes, which he narrates with the element of surprise and the flow of dreams. Unique characters and juxtaposed environments abound, all giving voice to the artist’s vision.
