FCGD LAMENTS THE PASSING OF FERNANDO UREÑA RIB

It is with deepest regret and sadness that we announce the death of one of our dearest colleagues, the artist and writer Fernando Ureña Rib.

An outstanding artist and painter, Fernando Ureña Rib was born in La Romana on March 21, 1951. He studied painting at the School of Fine Arts in San Francisco de Macorís. Thanks to a state grant he was given in 1963, Ureña Rib continued his studies at the National School of Fine Arts where he took workshops in oil and mural painting under the tutelage of Dominican maestro, Jaime Colson.

Ureña Rib graduated with a degree in Philosophy and Letters in 1968 then went on to study foreign languages at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD). Since 2006, he held the post of Cultural Attaché at the Dominican Embassy in Berlin. He was developing film scripts at the time of his untimely death.

The Dominican Global Film Festival joins his family in mourning his passing. May he rest in peace.
