David Blanco Aristin was born in Palencia, Spain in 1955. He studied “Agricultural Expert” (agricultural techniques), Psychology and Audio-Visual Communications. He worked as a correspondent for the magazine “Correo Del Arte” for several years, till he was relocated to the Balearic Islands. For years he worked at the school “Eugenio Lopez” in Palma de Mallorca, where he taught Drawing and Painting.
For the last years he has basically worked and researched in everything related to image, shape and colours, being highly interested in the art as the creative fact wherever it is produced. The image and the movement took the author to an indescribable expressionist constructivism. David Blanco’s work can be seen in various museums as well as in public and private collections in Europe, Ukraine, U.S.A., Morocco and the United Kingdom.
