Biography

          Me inicio en la pintura al óleo en el año 1994, de la mano de mi hermana Inma, licenciada en Bellas Artes, comenzando con algunos bodegones. Es mi hermana quien me enseña los principios básicos de la pintura al óleo además de cómo preparar los lienzos o las maderas sobre las que pintar. Anteriormente, había tenido contacto con el dibujo.


         

          Me inicio en la pintura al óleo en el año 1994, de la mano de mi hermana Inma, licenciada en Bellas Artes, comenzando con algunos bodegones. Es mi hermana quien me enseña los principios básicos de la pintura al óleo además de cómo preparar los lienzos o las maderas sobre las que pintar. Anteriormente, había tenido contacto con el dibujo.


          Al poco tiempo y de forma ya autodidacta, comienzo a pintar paisajes gaditanos, sobre todo de tipo urbano, en los que la perspectiva y el realismo suelen ser el denominador común.


 


          Esta atracción por mi ciudad unida a la que también tengo por la perspectiva y a la luz, dan como resultado estos cuadros. Todo ello dentro de mi estilo realista, tratando de ir más allá de lo que marca la impresión fotográfica.


           En 1997 obtengo el primer premio, con un óleo de una vista desde el castillo de San Sebastián, en el certamen de pintura de las IV Jornadas de \\\\\\\"La mar y su Cádiz, organizada por la Asociación de Mujeres del Mar.


           En el año 1999 quedo seleccionado y finalista, con un óleo de la Plaza de San Antonio, en el II concurso de pintura organizado por la Confederación de Empresario de la provincia de Cádiz (CEC).


           En diciembre de 1997 hago mi primera exposición individual en el Casino Militar de la Calle Ancha en Cádiz.


           En el año 2001 expongo por segunda vez mis obras en \\\\\\\"Cristalarte\\\\\\\", en la Calle Valverde de Cádiz.


           En mayo de 2003 expongo en la galería “El Pópulo”, en la plaza de San Martín en Cádiz, perteneciente a la Delegación Municipal de Comercio del Ayuntamiento de Cádiz.


           En 2004, exposición colectiva en el Centro Cultural El Palillero, con tema de Agua de Cádiz.


           En estos últimos años he expuesto mis cuadros en la Galería de Arte “Artica” y en “DePablo” en Cádiz.


           Tengo una exposición permanente de mis cuadros en Internet en la siguiente dirección:
