Jaime Valero, Madrid (Spain), 1967.
At a young age Jaime showed his skills and interest for drawing and painting which lead him to obtain a Fine Arts degree at Complutense University in Madrid in 1985.
After getting his degree, he taught art and drawing for six years and then started his professional career as an artist in 1996. Since then he has been building his own style and imagery, primary painting with oil and focused on portraiture and figure, though he explores other techniques and themes as well.
He lived in the US (2001-2003) where he started investigating the possibilities of large-scale portraits and nudes in water. Since then he has dedicated most of his work to investigate different processes to portray water which has become his most personal and particular obsession.
Jaime’s paintings have been the subject of numerous solo and group international exhibitions including:
Museum Exhibitions and Colletions
Individual and Collective Exhibitions (Selection)
