About

I was born in the bosom of a modest family. My father had a natural talent for drawing and he made portraits of his brothers during a long convalescence due to a serious illness. Undoubtedly, I inherited this love for drawing and from child I used coal pieces to create small murals on the whitewashed walls of the courtyard, always under the attentive look of my mother. At the age of ten years old, I entered into the "H.H Maristas" to initiate High School. I found there an environment that stimulated my love for arts, as several theatrical, musical, literary or pictorial activities were frequently organized. I had the opportunity to draw large murals with religious content that reached a wide dissemination in Spain and Spanish America. In 1982, I started the Fine Arts degree in the Complutense University of Madrid, being a student of Agustín Ubeda, Antonio Guijarro or José Carralero, who gave me a landscape final degree grant. I deeply remembered the tips and the dedication of the Professor of drawing Álvaro Paricio, who offered me the possibility to stay in the University as associate lecturer. And of course I remembered with special fondness my classmates, I learnt so much also from all of them. At the University I met the painter Raquel Pérez Fariñas, mother of my daughter María and life partner, to whom I shared common artistic dreams in those starting years. In 1990, the art dealer Sam Benady opened a gallery close to the Museo del Prado and proposed me to begin working exclusively with him, carrying out the promotion of my work around prestigious galleries in the world until 2008. From the work over the last years, I would like to emphasize my involvement in the Cosenza Project. In this beautiful Calabrian town and during two months I painted five murals measuring three metres in length and a height of two metres representing historical scenes related to the Spanish influence in that Italian region. It has been a human and artistic wonderful experience as it has allowed me to share my passion for art with masters like Jhon Pickind, Richard Whimcop, Silvia Pecha and Alexander Barberá Ivanov. Moreover, this artistic experience made me known the prodigious richness of working as a team in a creative project, forgetting fixations and personal interests to get a common objective. It has been something new for me, being used to always paint in the loneliness of my study, and for which I am deeply grateful. Thank you to my wife, Rosa María Herrero, for her love. I would like to thank people who, throughout my life experience, supported me to make possible the dream of being able to devote to what makes me so happy: just paint!
