Roel Caboverde Yacer

Roel Caboverde Yácer was born in Baracoa on November 20, 1947, to Balvino Caboverde and Hermelina Yácer Ortiz, both campesinos. He remained in that charming coastal village throughout his childhood and attended a public school.

He subsequently moved to Moa, where he demonstrated an obvious talent for painting, initially concentrating mostly on landscapes and graphics.
