About

Biography

Born and educated in Lima, Peru, Carlos Davila comes from a family of artists. After receiving his MFA from La Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, he participated in the reconstruction of the 1,500 year-old Pre-Colombian city of Chan-Chan in northern Peru.

 

Prior to emigrating to the United States, Davila spent time exhibiting in and traveling around Europe. He lived for many years in New York City where he attended Pratt Graphic Center and the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, and worked from a studio in Greenwich Village.

 

He currently lives in Ridgefield, Connecticut with his wife, Jane, who is also an artist, and works from a loft at the NEST Arts Factory in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
