Enzo (Miguel Ángel Duarte)
The personal story of Enzo (Miguel Ángel Duarte, Venezuela, 1963), has a fundamental pillar in his mother, a woman passionate about art, whose influence was decisive in the path he decided to travel as an artist. He applied as a student at the Escuela de Artes Arturo Michelena in Valencia, but he did not pass the pre-selection tests. Then in 1981, when he was 17 years old, he went to Caracas in search of new opportunities. He tries to enter the Escuela de Artes Plásticas Cristóbal Rojas, but fails again in his attempt. With no options to study arts, he began looking for a job to survive. In 1994, he started working in a gallery. Although the stay in this place was brief, it was the springboard to enter the cultural world. Already in 1995 he decided to set up his own art workshop.
