The work of Eduardo Sanabria (EDO), be it caricature or portrait, satire or celebration, is populated with faces. Faces everywhere. Faces of musicians and athletes, of tyrants and saints, of artists and fictional characters. People are the subject of his art, and it is their faces that represent them. An endless universe of faces, like in an infinity mirror, reveals all that we are–not with the colors of reality, but with the intense hues of the Baroque Caribbean watercolors rooted in this artist´s inexhaustible imagination.
EDO will be presenting a large selection of his latest and not-so-recent works in 2D and 3D in an exciting exhibition that will serve as a cheerful welcome to summer in Miami.
Eduardo Sanabria, also known as EDO, was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970. His graphic work began in the main Caracas’ newspapers, later he published in the newspapers “Venezuela Business News”, in Washington and New York, as well as in “Diario Las Americas “in Miami.
He has attended illustration courses, graphic design workshops and comic conventions in Panama, Mexico, Argentina, Spain and the United States (Miami, New York, Phoenix, San Diego and Las Vegas). EDO twice won the Pedro León Zapata Award given by the newspaper “El Nacional” to the best cartoonist in the Venezuelan press (2005 and 2008).
In 2007, he was awarded the “Golden Pen” Award as the best cartoonist in the 1st Graphic Humor Exhibition of the Caracas Arts Fair. He has published a series of books entitled HUMOR-ES EDO, volumes 1, 2 and 3, consisting of a selection of his most outstanding works published in the Venezuelan press. In 2018, together with the renowned humorist Laureano Márquez, he published “Historieta de Venezuela” a book in the key of humor and in comic format that tells the history of the Latin American country.
