Laureano García (b. 1922, Sancti Spiritus): An architect by training, Garcia has designed parks and residential buildings, and his murals and paintings – García is particularly known for his still lifes – combine abstraction and geometry with figurative elements.  Garcia was selected to participate in the inaugural show for the Amalia Mahoney gallery in Chicago and has been exhibited in Europe and the United States. He studied architecture at the University of Havana and art in Paris under sculptor Ossip Zadkine and the painter Andre Lothe. In the United States, he attended Fairfield University in Connecticut, the Pratt Institute and the Art Students League. (Cintas for art, 1963-64)
