Fernando Ibañez Alcaraz

In 1969, Alcaraz was born in Alcoy, Alicante.
In 1984, he began studying forms of art in the studio of a master teacher and artist. For over six years Ibanez worked under his mentor and dedicated five years to the art of drawing, He was guided by his teacher and supported by critical encouragement from companions and classmates while attending the Escuela deArtes y Oficios (School of Arts and Occupations) in Alcoy.
After studying all arts and techniques, Alcaraz chose to specialize in oil painting, without leaving aside his interest in pastels, watercolor and pencil drawing. The work of Alcaraz would qualify itself under the artistic style of realism, although in certain shades it could also be considered an elevated form of hyper realism.

Alcaraz has participated in collective and individual exhibitions:
In 1985, he received the second place prize of the IV Concurso de Careles de Fiestas de Moros y Cristianos in Ibi, Alicante.
In 1986, he competed in the Concurso de Hogueras Experimentales in Alicante and took the third place above four companions of his class.
In July 1992, he exhibited his work at the Encuentro Mundial for the Fraternidad Hermana, in the Palace for Exhibitions and Congresses of Granada.

In October 1992, he exhibited his work in a collective exposition in the Sala deArte EMECE of Alcoy.
In 1994, he participated in a collective exhibition at the Casa de la Cultura of Sollana, Valencia.
In 1996, Alcaraz participated the Sala de Arte EMECE of Alcoy’s Grand Collection of Contemporary Teachers of the Realism.

Today, Alcaraz is recognized for his broad artisitic skills, which he has perfected through years of tireless practice and study. He is masterfully produces detailed drawings, paintings of realistic still life and figurative studies of soft, relaxing Spanish beach and town scenes. His application of paint layers and texture create depth, light, and atmosphere, drawing the spectator into the tranquility of his subjects.
