Born in Argentina, the uniquely-talented, Miami Beach based HAVI has over 20 years of
combined experience as an artist, architect, interior and graphic designer. His vision of art is
reflected in a poetic way as his brushstrokes capture people’s feelings and emotions. His
architectural background is clearly embedded in his work. In the difficult-to-accomplish simplicity
of his paintings, he skillfully combines rigid and structured forms without losing the organic
character of his art. His creations complement each other in a subtle way.
