Arturo Garcia de las Heras
I was born in Madrid some time ago and I remember myself drawing and painting from life.
But it was not until 2001 when I started receiving “illustration and airbrush” lessons at the Academy of the prestigious Illustrator Carlos Díez (famous for his pin-up) during two years. From 2004 and for two more years, I was formed in the technique of oil from two masters in Madrid, my hometown. Later in Barcelona and then in London, I began to explore other techniques and materials, approaching the technique of engraving, thanks to Hermann Orduña and Fran Garnica, at Studio-Gallery “La Rueda”.
I have participated in several collective and solo exhibitions in Madrid, Barcelona and London.
I am in permanent search of new techniques, not only getting the appropriate lessons from an academic perspective, but also experimenting myself with new materials and ideas.
Currently my artwork is part of private collections in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Toledo in Spain, as well as Mexico DF in Mexico, Puerto Rico and New York in U.S.A., Melbourne in Australia, and London in United Kingdom.
