Jose Ladron de Guevara artwork for sale and artist biography
Jose Ladron de Guevara was born in Malaga in 1979. He lives and works in Aguadulce (Almería – Spain).
He graduated in 2003 at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Granada, specializing in the fields of painting, drawing and photography. He has a Master’s degree in graphic design and multimedia at the University of Málaga in 2004.
He worked in one of the most powerful adver...tising agencies in Almeria for years, in which he developed ambitious advertising projects.
From 2011 he began developing his work as an artist to receive a portrait of the commissions of the most important personalities of Almería and Malaga. Working in oil, charcoal, graphite and pastel he is fascinated by trying to capture a fleeting moment in his paintings and to portray the essence of energy and movement.
He says "conceptually my work is about liberation as human beings through conscious acts, of becoming aware of our state. Through movement and the medium of soap and water my characters perform an act of internal cleansing."
Jose has exhibited his work widely throughout Spain and this is his first exhibition in London.
