Artist Biography

Jesús Navarro was born in Jerez, Cadiz in southern Spain, in 1952.

At the age of twelve his already apparent artistic talents led him
to the local school of arts and crafts (Escuela de Artes y Oficios de Jerez) where he studied painting and sculpture.
At this time he also became the apprentice of locally renowned painter, Ramírez Toro, under whom Navarro learned the complex techniques of classical painting.

In 1971, Navarro moved to Barcelona where he began a phase of self-teaching, focusing on combining classical techniques along with his newly discovered interest in detailed composition.

Three short years later, Navarro’s first exhibition was held in
Zamora, Spain at the bank Caja de Ahorros.
At the age of 25, Navarro partnered with other painters along with
the City Hall of Barcelona to create the Escuela de Arte Tres en Raya
where he was the director.

Throughout the eighties, Navarro displayed his works in several
exhibitions at galleries in Barcelona and his home town of Jerez
including: Galería de Arte del Corte –Ingles (Barcelona) Galería Canuda (Barcelona) Galería de Arte Manuel Daza a (Jerez).
During this period Jesus traveled to Mexico and Venezuela where he found inspiration for his artwork.

In 1996, Navarro’s work was part of a collective exhibition at the
Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, Florida. The museum
acquired a piece from this exhibition for their permanent collection.
Navarro’s work has continued to grow in popularity allowing him to
exhibit his work in galleries all over the world.

The art of Navarro is found in private collections in Japan, England, Norway, Chinese, Mexico, Venezuela, United States and Germany.
