Larraz is a Cuban-born painter who now lives in Miami. The son of a newspaper editor he left his home for Miami in 1961. He has worked full time as a painter since 1967.
His pieces are masterful in their use of color and while they are not, in themselves, hyper realistic they have a sort reality of their own. You believe these scenes are real when you look at them. They breathe and seem to have life of their own.
