Alfredo Navarro was born on the eastern coast of Spain in the city of Alcoy (Alicante) in 1965. Initially inspired by his father, Navarro attended the art school of Escuela Municipal de Bellas Artes at a young age. He continued his education in Valencia where he received a degree in economics at the Valencia University as well as an art degree from Circulo de Bellas Artes. He then returned to Alcoy to paint and apprentice under the painter/teacher Selles. At age 19, he began painting professionally and in 1986 received first place in an art exhibition sponsored by the Government Delegate of Galicia in Spain. Navarro considers his technique somewhere between Realism and Hyperrealism, respectingVelazquez for the artist's ability to capture the soul of a person in a portrait and the colours and atmosphere used to create the paintings. With an equal admiration for Picasso and El Grecofor their bold creativity and expressive colours. Such creativity, expressive colours and atmosphere can be found in Navarro's striking sunsets, sweeping seas and foaming waves. Inspired by the vastness of both the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
