Franz Fox was born on the island of Cuba under the Batista Regime. Born in Holguin, he was the son of a prominent Havana attorney. After the Castro government came into power, several uprisings resulted in immediate family members being jailed for defiance of the communist government. Soon thereafter, Fox’s family migrated to the US, just before the Cuban missile crisis.
During his travels to England, France, Italy, Spain, and Holland, Franz perfected his art through his studies of landscape and architecture. He studied painting in Paris, France and Malaga, Spain. His formal education is in architecture which gives him a unique mastery of perspective and spatiality.
