Artist Biography

After fleeing Havana as a young man, Hivo Van Teal was able to unleash his artistic sensibilities and launch an award-winning lighting and accessories company. Creating sculpture shapes in acrylic soon became a passion. “In 1974, I opened a 600-sq.-ft. studio close to my house in Miami Beach. Together with Estela, I made my first sculptures named Family, Atlanta, and Prism. A friend of mine who was a furniture representative saw them and exhibited them at a show in Miami Beach. “Euster Furniture was one of the most exclusive high-end showrooms in Miami, and Mr. Euster was very impressed with my sculptures and gave us a $10,000 order,” Hivo recalls. “And that was the beginning of Van Teal, Inc.” Soon, art galleries in Florida and tony retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue in Bal Harbour and I. Magnin in Washington D.C. began selling Van Teal sculptures. In 1976, Van Teal Inc. opened its first showroom at the High Point Market in North Carolina. Van Teal has been singled out for excellence by winning First Prize for Contemporary Sculptures from ACCA (1986, ’87, ’89, ’90, and ’92) plus received two ARTS Awards (1995 and 1996).
