Royo

Painting, Sculpture

Spain / Born Valencia 1941

Royo

A moment of quiet reverie is, for most of us in today's fast-paced world, an elusive luxury. Perhaps that is why we are so drawn to the artwork of Royo; he transports us to a peaceful place, one of tranquility and beauty.

Born in 1941 in Valencia, Spain, Royo began demonstrating his artistic talent early. When Royo turned 14 he entered the San Carlos Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia. Upon turning 18 Royo continued his artistic studies privately with Aldolfo Ferrer Amblat, Chairman of Art Studies at the San Carlos Academy. He also visited the major museums in Europe at this time to study the famous masters - Velasquez, Goya, Renoir, Monet, and Sorolla among others.

During the mid-60's and early 70's, Royo added more dimensions to his skills, creating theatre sets and doing graphic illustration and restoration work. He also participated in prestigious competitions gaining major distinctions. In 1968 he began to exhibit in Spain, specifically Lisbon, Madrid and Barcelona. With positive reception of his works in Madrid, Royo received commissions to paint the royal portraits of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.

Beginning in 1989 and continuing today we see the development of Royo's "matured" style. His dramatic use of color and "texturing" capture his subject matter with unique flair. Parallels can be drawn to the work of the European masters; for example, with Royo's "homage to the female form," we see the distinct influence of Renoir.
