Alfredo Roldan Spanish Artist

Alfredo Roldan was born in Madrid in 1965. At the age of 22, having had no formal artistic training, he started drawing professionally, selling his work in street markets, at the same time presenting his work at major competitions, of which he won several. It was on winning the award granted by the City Council of Madrid in 1994 that he was discovered by a major gallery. His winning painting now hangs in the Museum of Modern Art, Madrid. In 1996 he was named a Member of the Senate "Honoris Causa" of the Academy of Modern Art of Rome.

  1. Thank you so much for this post. As a half spanish history of Art student I really have a lack of spanish artists. Except of the known ones (Picasso, Dali and so on). Thank you for a name and pictures I didn't know and enjoyed.
