Juan Miguel Pozo | CV

Juan Miguel Pozo Cruz was born 1967 in Holguin, Cuba. During his time as an art student at the University of Havana a German journalist discovered him in 1994, drawing the attention of friendly artists like Konrad Klapheck on the Cuban painter. These artists advocated for Pozo‘s scholarship at the Art Academy Düsseldorf in Germany, enabling him to emigrate to Europe. The artworks of Juan Pozo are part of such renowned international art collections as Ella Fontanals Cisneros, Falckenberg, Ludwig, Nachmann and Sean Penn and many more.
