Enrique Machado resides and works in Miami, Florida. His artistic journey began in 4th grade when he was encouraged to apply for the Visual Arts Magnet Program at South Miami Elementary School. Inspired by this experience, Machado continued his artistic pursuits by attending various art magnet programs, including South Miami Middle School, Design and Architecture High School. In 2004, he graduated from the prestigious New World School of the Arts.

Machado's passion for art led him to be awarded a scholarship to the Kansas City Art Institute, where he joined the sculpture department. This opportunity provided him with a platform to explore different materials and unleash his creativity.

In 2007, Machado made a groundbreaking discovery that ignited a new passion within him—the material known as silicone. Intrigued by its sleek texture and organic properties, he traded in his paintbrush for a caulk gun. Painting with silicone became his obsession, transforming the act of painting into a performance in itself. Over the years, Machado experimented with various application techniques, using silicone as a powerful medium to express his artistic voice.

As one of Miami's emerging talents, Enrique Machado has garnered local attention from collectors, critics, and art fairs. Renowned Miami New Time's art critic Carlos Suarez De Jesus, and Triennial Miami's Director/Curator Jorge Luis Gutierrez have written essays on his work, highlighting his artistic vision.

Machado's artwork has been exhibited at prestigious Galleries and art fairs, including "Art Miami", "Aldo Castillo Gallery", "Art Spot", "Red Dot", "Spectrum Miami Art Fair", as well as galleries such as "LMNT Gallery," "Gallery 212," "1310 Gallery," "The Hangar Gallery," "Ave 74 Gallery," "Flagler Art Space Gallery," and "Buena Vista Gallery."
