Arturo Garcia De Las Heras was born in Madrid, Spain, where he attended the Academy of the Illustrator Carlos Díez and afterwards, he trained in oil painting techniques from two master painters in Madrid. Moving to London, where he now lives and works, Arturo, started exploring other techniques and materials, including engraving.
Arturo’s artworks reflect the artist fascination for humanity as a multitude of individuals and mostly as a community. Getting closer to the artist populated scenes, we can identify ourselves in the crowd and get lost and puzzle with made-up stories about what is happening around each of them. Captured from above, his characters all seem to have the same importance, the same busy and hectic ongoing.
Arturo has exhibited his work in Hong Kong, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Munich, Luxembourg, Madrid, Barcelona, London.
