One of the most prolific and emblematic artists of Cuba’s Historic Exile community, Humberto Calzada was born in Havana in 1944 and moved to Miami in 1960, where he attended the University of Miami and completed a degree in Industrial Engineering (1966) with an MBA in Finance (1968). In the years following his schooling, Calzada worked in the field of engineering while pursuing painting as a personal passion. In 1976, Calzada abandoned the engineering profession for a full-time career in art. The influence of his engineering background would manifest itself in the artist’s precise and structural creative output, and become a striking hallmark of his work.

Works by Humberto Calzada are in the collection of the Smithsonian Institute, Washington D.C.; Art Museum of the Americas, Organization of American States (OAS), Washington, DC; Lowe Museum of Art, Miami, FL; Pérez Art Museum, Miami, FL; Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, FL; Frost Museum at FIU, Miami, FL; Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, FL; Museo de Bellas Artes de Santiago, Chile; and the Museo de Arte de Ponce, Ponce, Puerto Rico, among many others. His work is included in many distinguished private and corporate collections, including the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Wells Fargo International Bank, Bank of Tokyo, Banco Nacional do Brasil, Republic International Bank, Capitol National Bank, and Republic International Bank, and many more, as well as in the U.S. State Department’s embassy collection.
