Jesus Navarro is a classically-trained, hyperrealist Spanish painter now based in Barcelona.
Born in 1952 in Cadiz, Southern Spain, at a young age Navarro was taught complex painting techniques by renowned artist Ramirez Toro. Working with oils, Jesus Navarro masterfully controls each aesthetic variable to maintain the integrity of the subject. He adjusts the translucency and sheen of the paint, regulating the density of the oil and layering pigment to avoid cracking and concealing every brushstroke. Known for his hyper-realistic still life works, each individual painting is created with meticulous precision.Read More
