Alejandro Obregon

Alejandro Obregón was born in 1920 in Barcelona, Spain, where his family lived for some time. Most of his childhood was spent in Barranquilla, Colombia and Liverpool, England. In 1939 he studied fine arts in Boston for a year and then returned to Barcelona to serve as Vice Consul of Colombia for four years.
