José Aguiar was born in Cuba to Gomeran parents. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando (1916). José Aguiar created large murals made in encaustic wax. José Aguiar was an artist with a remarkable technique and great sense of composición. One of our favorite painters. Every year since 1999, in La Gomera, they hold an art competition, at the end of which they they award the José Aguiar Painting Prize .

Encaustic Wax, an explanation.
