Edgardo was born in Barranquilla, Colombia. He came to the United States in 1978 as an exchange student. He attended Montgomery College in Maryland to study architecture and continued to paint fine art. Recently, Edgardo has decided to dedicate himself to the kind of painting he has always been passionate about. He recently obtained a BFA from the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University in Boston and attended summer workshops at the Angel Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy. His atmospheric, emotionally and technically precise works are achieved through appreciation and understanding of color and light and a careful study of the subjects he paints.
