Cesar Santos (http://www.santocesar.com) is an ARC Living Master. In the last few years, his work has been shown at the Beijing Museum in China, and he has had solo shows in Miami, Florida; Houston, Texas; Chelsea, New York City and the National Gallery of Costa Rica. He received first place in the Metropolitan Museum contest “It’s Time We MET” and, more recently, received first prize in the portrait competition at the Grand Central Academy in New York, where he was competing against top portrait painters from the U.S. and Canada.
