Ángel de Cáceres García was born in Córdoba and is resident in Sanlúcar la Mayor (Seville). Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Seville, specialising in Painting, a year after he succeeded in obtaining the post of Professor of Drawing and Plastic arts through public examinations, and performed this position during the next nine years, combined with study of new techniques of painting and sculpture.
In 1997 he started a new experimental period, dedicated to go more deeply into several techniques, specially about oil painting, and into the study of great masters formulas. Is in this period when he discovers possibilities of pastel, a mean which he soon feels himself identified with, and to whose experimentation will dedicate several years, until he found in it a personal way of interpret reality and a way of transmitting his artistic needs.
“To paint Venus or Eve, or Rusalka or Ligeia, or Andromeda or Danae… to look for an image that represents the trace of Camille Claudel or Jeanne Hébuterne… turning me in this way into a traveller among their histories or their times, is like paying a visit to the dreams. In both of them I have found a reflection of a great majority of our passions, so that the concepts of myth and legend blend themselves in each case with the effects of love and with states that range from despair to ecstasy.“ Ángel de Cáceres García
