He studied Fine Arts at the National School of Visual Arts in Santo Domingo. Subsequently, he entered the Altos de Chavón School of Design, in La Romana, to study Fine Arts and Illustration.

 

He has multiple solo and group exhibitions, as well as design and curatorial projects. From abstraction to intervened photographs, Morbán approaches and questions different themes with his work, including the sociopolitical culture of our country.

 

“My work is the result of reflections on my insular condition. On the one hand I work with memory: archive images and objects that build our history and, on the other, with the visual elements of my current city, Santo Domingo, especially the horizon, the architecture and the vegetation. I confront both cases taking into account their emotional qualities and reflecting on the here / now and the imminent, that which is announced in whispers in everyday life. ”
