Born in Havana, Cuba in 1967, Edel Alvarez Galban has always had a fascination with everything artistic. From his infancy, he painted everything around him, becoming a threat to all the walls, furniture, and electrical devices in his childhood home. No one wanted the child to visit their house for fear he would start “decorating”. Elementary teachers noticed very early his artistic talent, but later in adolescence his vocation for medicine tilted the balance to study medicine-therefore he became a doctor. Currently, his artwork is a combination of multimedia including charcoal, acrylic, oil and ink, on both canvas and paper.
