    About the artist

    Requena Nozal, October 25, 1947, Zaragoza (Spain).

    At the age of 12 he begins his musical training in trombone and piano in the music conservatories of Zaragoza, Pamplona, ??Valencia and Madrid. For several years he plays professionally in different orchestras throughout Spain.

    But his great passion for painting takes him on trips throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the USA and Russia, where he visits many museums acquiring valuable pictorial knowledge.

    His first solo exhibition takes place in 1975 at the Provincial Museum of La Rioja.

    In 1982 he participates in the “National Painting Contest for Young Artists” organised by the newspaper ABC, in its “VII Black and White Painting Prize” edition.

    In 1996 he is awarded first prize of the “II Summer Salon New York City” organised by the Goya Art Gallery in New York.

    Since 1997 he is member of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, with member number 2,753.

    His first works dedicated to encaustic art date back to 1968 and reflect marginal social issues that are figurative in style. Many works of this time end up being destroyed by the artist himself because of his dissatisfaction with them. Some his sculptures will eventually suffer the same fate.

    In 1992 he moves to the coast of Alicante, settling down in Dénia.

    In 2004 he decides to radically change his style to abstract expressionism and tachism.
