About Javier

Javier Arizabalo, born in Saint-Jean-de-Luz (France) in 1965, studied with a number of different local artists in the Bidasoa region and at the Municipal Academy of Drawing in Irun before attending the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lejona (1983-1988), where he earned a degree in graphic design.
From 1989 to 2004 he worked as a graphic designer with minor incursions into the fields of photography and synthetic imagery, teaching also at the Irun Municipal Academy of Painting and Drawing from 1997 to 2001.

In 2006 he turned his attention exclusively to painting, working mainly in a kind of meticulous realist style, studying the effects of light on the human body. He also explored the sensitivity and repose of his models, which allow themselves to be contemplated in order to create a feeling of tranquillity in the viewer.
