Artist Biography

Sculptor, born in Havana, Cuba. Dionisio graduated from Havana's National School of Design in 1974 and was class valedictorian. That year he exhibited his works for the first time and was honored with the Award of the Cuban Committee to UNESCO. In 1980, fleeing government censorship, he joined other Cubans leaving Mariel Bay by boat and came to the United States. He lived and worked as an artist in Miami until his untimely death in 1987.
