Born in Havana, Cuba on June 30, 1986, Juan Carlos Vazquez Lima’s drawings stand out for his clever depictions of predominantly male characters and animals, mechanically jointed with spindly arms and legs. Vazquez Lima says he is inspired by the antics of his neighborhood in Central Havana.
He is a graduate of Eduardo Garcia Delgado School of Art Instructors, specializing in Fine Arts, in Havana, Cuba.
