Jesús Herrera Martínez was born in Petrer, Spain. He has a bachelor in Fine Arts and a master in drawing and expressive methods from Valencia Polytechnic University, Spain. He finalized the studies in the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, Italy. The work proposes a pictorical reflection in conflict-friction points of the construction of an image and its posterior representation; the technical-pictorical recuperation as inherent part of the artistic language and the narrative strategies inside the parameters of the “painting”.
