ORLANDO ALMANZA was born in the Eastern province of Las Tunas, Cuba. He began his studies at the Professional Academy of Visual Arts in the city of Las Tunas.
At 18, he made the long journey from Eastern Cuba to Havana to study at the prestigous Institute of Superior Arts. He began studying sculpture and was intrigued by so many mediums that he made a point of studying as many as he could, including printmaking, classic drawing, installation and oil painting.
His art is a fearless mix of many mediums, often overlapping. Almanza likes to leave clues and unfinished lines for the viewer, showing the many layers and processes behind each piece.
Almanza has exhibited extensively in Havana, as well as in the United States and Mexico. His art belongs to private collections in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Ghana, and South Africa.
He currently lives in the historic center of Havana.
