Rafael Soriano was born in 1920 in Matanzas, Cuba. He fled the island with his wife and daughter in 1962. The family settled in Miami, and he was forced to temporarily take a respite from his artwork. When he returned to his artwork, Soriano began to combine abstract forms of light, space and shadows with metaphysical images. He has exhibited widely in the Americas and in Europe and is included in a myriad of museum collections.
