Royo

Royo was born to be a painter saying “I have always wanted to be an artist, or better said, I never had a choice.” Despite his great natural talent he says “Painting is a privilege, you must earn.” Capturing the
color and intensity of his native Valencia and the beauty and perfect light of Majorca, the influence of Sorolla is obvious while the bursts of color and flow of the female form draw comparison to Renoir. Royo’s Spanish impression is as unique and powerful as the homeland that he paints.
