Pablo Jurado Ruiz was born in Malaga, Spain and studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Malaga. After spending time in Anchorage, Alaska and Manchester, UK he returned to his native Spain where he lives and work as Creative Director.
Pablo explains his work by saying, “With a creative concept based primarily on human representation, I try to tell stories through a minimalist and subtle vision. My current work is focuses on a simple but realistic drawing and worked in an impressionist technique, complex and very accurate as pointillism or stippling art. I like to talk about love, disappointment, nature, childhood… and I show it in a glance, a gesture or a detail as if it were a metaphor of life. Since childhood I liked to express my ideas with pencil and paper. Markers, paintings, tales and comics filled my world. At an early age I discover the European and American comics of the 80s and 90s and my first references as Milo Manara or Moebius. Later studying art history, painting captivates me with artists like Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Georges Pierre Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso… all these influences coexist in my training and vision of art.”
