Carlos A. Maciá (1951-1994) was a painter in Miami, Florida and Barcelona, Spain.
Maciá was born in Havana, Cuba and immigrated to the U.S. at age 11. He attended Miami Springs Senior High School before studying to become a monk at the Convento de Franciscanos in Spain in 1970. He left the convent after a year and went on to study art at the San Fernando Academy in Madrid. In 1972 he returned to Miami to attend Miami Dade Community College. He continued his studies at Barry College where he received a bachelor's degree in theology and philosophy in 1977. In 1983 he received a master's degree in theology. Maciá's interest in theology was a frequent theme in his artwork.
Early in his career Maciá worked with collages and etchings. In 1987, he moved to Barcelona to make a series of handmade books and boxes. He is also known for creating building facades and large-scale works. When in Miami, Maciá worked in the bedroom of his parents' house in Hialeah.
Maciá was awarded the Florida Arts Council Fellowship in 1982 and in 1984 the prestigious Cintas Fellowship. He exhibited his work internationally and has works in permanent museum collections in Boston, Barcelona, and Paris. Maciá died in 1994.
