Check out our Q&A with Julio Ferrer.
Born in Cienfuegos, Cuba in 1973, Julio currently lives and works in Hamilton, Ontario. He studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Havana Cuba as well as The International People's College, Denmark.
His earlier work can be described as "pop/political" art which is often created with silkscreen techniques. Ferrer also works in oil for his paintings of Cuban cars and images of historic Hamilton. His painting technique is often photorealism with saturated colours or a sepia tone palette.
