Marc Figueras is a Spanish artist born in Barcelona in 1981. He studied mural painting at L’Escola Superior de Disseny i Art Llotja, as well as the art of stained glass at the workshop of the world-renowned master glassmaker, Josep Maria Bonet. He has participated in the restoration of the stained glass windows of the art nouveau Casa de les Punxes, designed by the modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch. His hyper-realistic paintings capture urban lifestyle portraying people, bicycles or cars in front of some the most iconic monuments of Barcelona. Immensely real and full of life, his work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in countries such as Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and India.
In his own words:
My paintings arise from the perception of the life of the streets, from the expression of the city.
