Born in Santiago de Cuba, Daniel Serra Badue became one of the first Surrealist Cuban painters out of the "second generation." During his lifetime, he became the director of La Escuela Normal de Maestros in Santiago. Today, the Society of American Graphic Artists (SAGA) gives an award each year in his honor to one deserving artist.
