J. A. SOROLLA GALLEN BIOGRAPHY
Jose Antonio Sorolla Gallen was born in 1959 in the small town of Onda in Castellon province, Spain. His native town is famous worldwide as a place where extraordinary painted ceramic house wares have been made for centuries. His family also owned a ceramics business and at age 11, Jose Antonio Sorolla first started painting pottery in his family’s workshop. Gradually, he learned the secrets of this ancestral work until one day he discovered oil painting.
As Jose Antonio says, “I do not know if I did right or wrong, but I did not paint pottery ever again.” Instead his career as a painter has blossomed first exhibiting his work across Spain and then throughout Europe with shows in Italy, Belgium, Germany, Sweden and the Czech Republic. His work is in numerous private and public collections worldwide.
