Hi, I'm Octavio Irving. 20 years ago I discovered my passion for Art and since then I never stop to create. I have been professor at the Arts University of Cuba and managed the Experimental Graphic Workshop of Havana. I had been involve in more than 100 exhibitions in Cuba abroad. Now I managment my own independent project Irving Studio, for the promotion of printmaking and drawing. With Beatriz, my co-host we organize a programme of Art Experiences to support non profit Art projects. Art is an universal lenguage and what I like the most is to feel and share this special connection.

Irving Studio has been very attractive to all our visitors.It is an engraving workshop built with metal structure (factory type) on the roof of the private house of the artist Octavio Irving.The Martí neighborhood, where the studio is located, is an interesting micro reflection of the Cuban reality, its conflicts and inequalities.We will find strong contrasts within the neighborhood and in relation to residential areas of Havana.

We had an amazing experience with Octavio and Beatriz. They were extremely welcoming, allowing us to visit their working art studio and home. We've traveled around the world and this was one of our most memorable experiences. The entire experience was hands on and engaging - we got to make prints that captured the essence of Cuba and take them home with us. We learned an immense amount about lithography, etching, and other techniques that Octavio uses to create his pieces. He is a world renowned artist with pieces exhibited internationally, including in museums and hotels in Cuba and other countries. In addition, Octavio and Beatriz shared with us stories about their lives and art in Cuba. We also got to explore Octavio's collection of work, which was just beautiful and intriguing. His pieces are so unique, make a statement, and capture life and Cuba. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. We left feeling as though we had made two new friends. Thank you Octavio and Beatriz!

I was not quite sure what to expect from this experience, but I walked away feeling profoundly impacted. Octavio is not just a wonderful local artist, he has been featured in International art shows in Los Angeles in London and visited by Michelle Obama!! His talent and skill are clear as soon as you walk into his studio. His lovely wife helped not only with translation, but also with sharing his work and supporting us through the process. I believe I could have spent all day talking with them and learning about the different techniques that Octavio uses in his pieces. I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination, but was able to create something beautiful alongside a wonderfully talented artist - priceless!

It’s awesome to see the art works at the studio. They’re doing amazing job. The printing was not tough. Everyone can do it with instruction. A round way pick up was arranged as well - which was really thoughtful. They’re super friendly.

I almost skipped this experience not once but twice!!! I'm glad I didn't because it was very magical! I met Octavio at the meet up location and was honored to meet his mother as well. We then drove to his home/studio in his lada. Once there I was shown the studio by his wife. One the 1st things I was shown outside of discussing the pictures around the studio was a picture of Octavio with Michelle Obama 2016, from that point forward I knew I made the right decision in coming! Octavio began the process of preparing the ink while Beatriz helped me pick my prints. They are a great team (A Dynamic Duo). I have so much gratitude for this experience that thank you hardly feels like enough. If you read to this point definitely book...it will be worth your time! :)

This was our favorite thing we did in Cuba. Octavio and his wife Beatriz are remarkable people. They are so thoughtful and gracious. We learned so much about Cuban life and the Cuban art world during our time with them. They welcomed us into their home which is beautiful and filled with paintings and sculpture. We had coffee and talked about Octavio’s art. Then we went upstairs to his incredible studio to learn how to make a print. Octavio and his friends built these presses from salvaged materials, showing the resourcefulness of the Cuban people. He was very patient as we learned how to make prints. We took home a beautiful set of prints and had the opportunity to buy some of his art as well. This was truly the most amazing experience for us. If you want to talk with real Cubans or just enjoy artwork, you will not be disappointed.
