Alex Alemany has made a living as a painter since finishing his studies in Fine Arts in San Carlos de Valencia, having gone through a useful training at the School of Arts and Crafts. He was born in Gandía in 1943, and followed the usual trajectory in the plastic creators of that time, embarking on the avant-garde towards abstract expressionism. Until 1975 he found his own poetic sensibility, fueled by the magical realism of literature and portraiture.
