He obtained his degree in art at the ISP “Félix Varela” of Santa Clara, Cuba, in 1995. Achieving his research thesis, Art, Ecology, and Humanism, between 1995 and 1996. In it, Antuan already emphasizes the role of the artist as a social practitioner.
Since then, Antuan has developed and produced many projects, pouring into them his idea of a fusion between art, design and architecture, through which to express his integrating views of the environment, endangered species and modern human conflicts. He realizes Memories of the 20th Century(1997), and his sculpture series Forks and Spoons(1997), about the Concentration Camps. In 1998, he is granted a scholarship by Fundación Bancaja in Valencia, Spain.

By 1999 the artist migrates to the USA. His years in America shake his artistic concerns related to the balances between humans, environmental
and social challenges and discrepancies. Becoming part of a comprising narrative beyond the sketchy trends of the art market. His cosmogonic vision becomes a symbol of his art proposals, his conceptual framework moves into another dimension.
Through the 2000 years, his work involves human healing, AIDS, political manipulation issues.
Also human traffic, financial greed, and environmental concerns.
Around 2015, a shift on the artists though takes place. His philosophical and cultural perspectives become integrated into one single approach, understanding that human need to connect to the natural world and following the universal laws that oversee how the cosmos works and balances. Issues such as universal codes, vibration, sacred geometry, eternal intelligible substances, and first principles, become all referents that govern existence in and beyond art.
In 2016 his major solo exhibition took place at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami (MOCA). In 2017 he created the studio "Antuan Lab", a space of creation where multiple disciplines converge and that conceives as a new renaissance to stimulate new concepts of art and industry and sustainable architecture and the creation of the new human net, The Nous. 2019 was the year of his shows at Building Bridges Art Exchange (Santa Monica, CA), and the Fault Line Residence in Art, Science and Technology (Hi-Desert, CA), true events in the artist's life that introduced him to a new stage in his consciousness's approach, on the constant human concern for universal communication. Through forms, symbols and codes, he connects the methodologies of artistic production.
His artistic training is complemented by the exploration of alternatives to understand the human as part of universal intelligence. For this he dabbled study 1989 of the mind control method of the master Jose Silva, in 2002 – 2007; meditation practices in Pranic Healing, with the Master Choa Kok Sui, in 2013 - 2019. Practices in healing ceremonies with sounds, studies of vibration, energy healing, symbolism and communication codes for global evolution
In fact, his upcoming projects for public spaces, ephemeral urban experiences, performances, museum exhibitions and reflection –dialogues with expanded audiences, become art as a life-changing act. Antuan's creativity is a continuous and integral expression of environmentalist and cosmogonic consciousness, as a transdisciplinary search for human connection to his universe.
