Leon, 1974. Resident in Mallorca.
Although interested in art since he was a child, and standing out especially in painting, Eduardo Blanco's university studies took him down another path, leading him to end up graduating in Tourism.
As an adult, he resumes his interest in painting and begins to train himself through books, videos, lots of practice and experimentation, and immersing himself fully in the artistic world with visits to museums, exhibitions, seminars, talks, workshops, etc. …
The fundamental pillars of his work are drawing and composition, the basis on which his paintings are based, which also reflect the deep knowledge of light, volumes and color that catches the viewer and directs their gaze. His watercolors and his oil paintings have their own distinctive style, which makes them attract different audiences with different artistic interests. In his oil paintings he timidly flirts with abstraction, although his painting is mainly figurative.
He has worked mainly on commissions, participating in some exhibition and selling his work through the internet. He is currently represented by prestigious online galleries such as Artsy, Singulart, Saatchy, Artsper, and the Barcelona Art Nou Mil.lenni gallery. His work is already in both national and international private collections.
Since 2017, when he joined the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Baleares and the Balearic Watercolor Artists Association, he has been more active in competitions with good results and appearances in specialized articles and magazines.
In 2022 he was chosen by Banco Santander to make a portrait of the tennis player Rafa Nadal. Portrait that the Bank gave to the tennis player on the occasion of the 21st Grand Slam won by him up to that date.
