Antonio Murado explores his interest in nature using subject matter—often abstracted landscapes and flowers—and experimentation with the behavioral properties of paints and varnishes. By building up layers on the surface of the canvas, he achieves great depth and a meditative mood.
Murado was born in Lugo, Spain in 1964 and graduated from the University of Salamanca. Shown internationally in multiple solo and group exhibitions around the world, Murado’s paintings are now held in prominent museum, corporate, and private collections including The Galician Center of Contemporary Art, Santiago de Compostela, Spain; The Museum of Fine Art, Vitoria, Spain; The Nagasaki Art Museum, Japan; and in the collections of Phillip Morris, American Express, Chase Manhattan Bank, AXA, Pfizer, and The Coca-Cola Corporation.
Murado lives and works in New York City.
