Edward Aparicio creates elegant, uncluttered artworks that exude a subtle Asian aesthetic. Born in Peru, he immigrated to Miami and began drawing at age 6. His late grandfather, well-known Peruvian artist Manuel Martinez de Aparicio, was a strong influence. The younger Aparicio received degrees in advertising and graphic design, as well as computer graphics and fine arts. His distinctive work has been exhibited at numerous galleries throughout Florida, including several in Miami, Coral Gables and Fort Lauderdale.
