Gustavo Lazo Oval

My name is Gustavo Lazo Oval. I was born in 1966 on the 12 of January in Havana. In Cuba, I lived in Mantilla, which is in the Averoff district. Throughout my childhood, even though I was from the capital, I was always close to nature and to literature. However, in 1982, I studied ... mechanical engineering in Gervasio Cabreras university in Cotorro. I earned my degree and proceded to work with metallurgical equipment and heavy duty maintenance until I immigrated to Spain in 1995.

Currently, I live in the Canary Islands, where I became a restorer of facades and a stonemason. As a romantic, passionate for literature and music, a follower of compassionate philosophy, my affection for poetry became a hobby to contrast my industrial profession. Overtime, my daily poetic musings started to amount to huge volumes of work, the best of which now form my series of Spanish poetry entitled Donde se Esconden las Emociones. I must apologize for the lack of an English translation for my works but a translated compliatiton of my poems is forthcoming.
