Julio Ferrer won a scholarship by presenting a portfolio of his work at the National School of Visual Art in Havana at the age of 14. He won the first prize at the International Biennial of Humor in Havana at the age of 24.
Ferrer primarily works in two different disciplines: Hyperrealism and Pop Art. In this work Ferrer shows Cuba's exodus by water, cleverly depicted, riding the Hokusai wave to freedom.
