Eduardo Naranjo 1944 | Spanish neo-realist painter


Eduardo Naranjo, one of the great spanish painters, was born in 1944 in Monastery (Badajoz). Meet in 1957 his master Eduardo Acosta and joins the School of Arts and Crafts, where he studied until 1960. That same year he entered the School of Fine Arts of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. In 1961 he moved to study at the Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid, and that is where their education ends with paint. But his concerns forced him to study painting and engraving intaglio mural and attending classes at the Circulo de Bellas Artes. Started at this time Expressionist stage. Listed in the National Exhibition several times, getting big hits. It is a scholarship for the training of teachers by the Ministry of Education and Science, as well as for Castellblanch, having to go to Paris for a while. There he met the Impressionists and the avant-garde, but this does not influence much as it did cubism and Picasso´s neoclassicism. In 1971 he began his realistic stage that lasts until today. In addition to creating wonders and get many awards are dedicated to make scenery -"La Casa de Bernarda Alba, Lorca," Make me a story of the night "by Jorge Marquez. In 1986 starts the prints of the book "Poet in New York" by Federico Garcia Lorca, which expires in 1991. These will be exhibited for the first time in Madrid Book Fair in 1987. It is distinguished in 1991 as "Extremadura Hoy" and the Gold Medal of Extremadura, and in 1995 was awarded the Military Cross for his contribution to the Arts and the Army. His work is disturbing, complex. Your drawing is perfect, transcendent and illusory to contribute a special light and a colorful austere. It is a metaphorical realism, fantasy and imaginative.
