Biography
 

Victor Lafica was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, raised by his Italian born parents. At the early age of five, Victor began showing signs of his artistic ability. He experimented with pencils and watercolors before specializing in oils. At age sixteen, while attending school in his native Argentina, he went on to study commercial art. His passion for colors and creativity eventually led to him becoming a "Portrait Artist". After several years as a portrait artist, Victor, at age thirty, crossed the continent to come to live in America. He spent two years in Connecticut and participated in numerous art festivals, winning many awards.

In 1963, he moved to California where his art was featured in many invitational art exhibits, newspapers and magazines, gaining him recognition for his paintings of some of California's historical sites.

Victor has exhibited at the Laguna Beach Art-A-Fair Festival, San Diego County Fair, Eagle Fine Arts Gallery in La Jolla, CA, San Diego Hospice, and New York Art Expo in Manhatten.

 

Some of his award winning art includes "The Red Barn" in the city of Montebello; "The Gray Mansion" in the city of Alhambra; "the Carlsbad Train Depot" and the former "Twin Inn", now known as "Neiman's" in Carlsbad, CA. His oil paintings depict a wide variety of realistic portraits including the American Indian, Sea Captains and American Western art.

The detail of his landscapes and seascapes are overwhelmingly realistic. His award winning clown art has exhibited next to the famous Red Skelton's clown art.

Victor's travels in Europe, have inspired his fine European art. He is represented in many private collections both domestically and internationally. He has also exhibited at the "Laguna Beach Art-A-Fair" festival and is also a member of the Artist's Guild at the San Diego Museum of Art.

All of Victor's original art are painted in oils on canvas. The reproductions, "Giclee's" are also on high quality canvas and made to perfection. We hope you enjoy his art.
