Carlos Navarro is an award-winning painter, illustrator and sculptor, whose work appeared on the covers of Art Calendar, and several art magazines.

Navarro was born in Cuba, a small town in the South of France, in 1990. He was an only child and was influenced profoundly by his father, Jules.

When Carlos was just six years old, he heard his father say for the first time a well-known French saying “Quand on n’a pas ce que l’on aime, Il faut aimer ce que l’on a.” It’s translation is When one doesn’t have the things that one loves, one must love what one has. At that moment, Carlos started wondering would it be possible for one to love something one is created on one’s own, without using too many resources, just one’s will and commitment. A day later, he started drawing and sketching his first artworks.

Navarro began studying Liberal Studies and Art History at Paris College of Art in 2008. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree, he continued his studies in Painting and Drawing, receiving a Master of Arts (MA) degree.

In 2015, Navarro was written up in several French art magazines and newspapers including Beaux Arts Magazine, Dossier de l’Art, and Grande Galerie. His work has also been shown in prestigious locations such as The Centre Pompidou, Musée des Beaux Arts in Dijon, and Musée Matisse in Nice.
