He applied at the University of Costa Rica and in 1968, with sculpture in his mind he was admitted at the School of Fine Arts. His stay in college, however, was rather short, since it was impossible for him to pass some introductory courses by proficiency and then he had to leave the School of Fine Arts.
In 1980 Edgar showed his first collective exposition with other artists from his native Alajuela at the “Juan Santamaría” Cultural and Historical Museum; the following year he set an exposition at the Costa Rican Museum of Art, in the Julian Marchena Hall, called “Twelve Contemporary Sculptors”. Then he wrote: “In those years I saw a clearer artistic line in my works: I perceived myself as a total artist of imagery, mostly due to my beginnings as a religious images sculptor.”
