José Rodríguez Fuster was born in Villa Clara in 1946. He paints, engraves and sketches and is also one of Cuba's most original ceramists. He began his artistic career in 1961 at the age of 14, when he went to the Sierra Maestra to teach in the Literacy Campaign. He studied at the Art Instructors School from 1963 to 1965. He then started working as a ceramist at the Cubanacán Ceramics Workshop in Havana in 1966. He has participated in contests, exhibits, and art symposia in Cuba and around the world.
He has a studio in Jaimanitas, just outside of Havana, that he shares with his grown son, Alex, a doctor. In honor of his 50th birthday in August, 1996, the National Fine Arts Museum opened a major exhibit of his ceramics, tiles, drawings and paintings in the Castillo de la Fuerza museum in Havana.
