Alejandro Casanova

Born in 1981 - Spain

BIOGRAPHY

Alejandro Casanova is a Spanish painter, he was born in Valencia in 1981. He studied fine arts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. He made a major impression over there, due to his brilliant academic technique. After his undergraduate studies, he moved to Tenerife and continued his training in higher education, he obtained an M.Phil,and received many research fellowships.

Casanova has a very unique style, he paints portraits and mundane life scenes. He does oil painting and depicts tiny details of everyday life, skilfully: he portrays characters in their personal life, in action, sometimes naked but without any provocation whatsoever and always in intimate and calm places.

His first solo exhibition took place in 2005 in Valencia, at the age of 24 and since then he has been participating in group and solo projects, during which he was rewarded several times.
