Hi, I'm Octavio Irving. 20 years ago I discovered my passion for Art and since then I never stop to create. I have been professor at the Arts University of Cuba and managed the Experimental Graphic Workshop of Havana. I had been involve in more than 100 exhibitions in Cuba abroad. Now I managment my own independent project Irving Studio, for the promotion of printmaking and drawing. With Beatriz, my co-host we organize a programme of Art Experiences to support non profit Art projects. Art is an universal lenguage and what I like the most is to feel and share this special connection. If you like to take a look of my work check mi IG (@octavioirving.artstudio

Where you'll be
Irving Studio has been very attractive to all our visitors.It is an engraving workshop built with metal structure (factory type) on the roof of the private house of the artist Octavio Irving.The Martí neighborhood, where the studio is located, is an interesting micro reflection of the Cuban reality, its conflicts and inequalities.We will find strong contrasts within the neighborhood and in relation to residential areas of Havana.
