Jordi Diaz Alama

Jordi Diaz Alama



Jordi Diaz Alama is a Spanish figurative artist and academician. He creates beautiful soulful paintings. He is skilled in making a definitive shape from thought, understanding the incomplete nature of reality. Diaz Alama creates an atmosphere which draws the viewer into his world, the characters in his works often deep in the midst of thought.

Born in 1986 Jordi Diaz Alama is the winner of Figurativas 2011, an award granted by the Foundation of Arts and Artists at the MEAM Museu Europeu Art Modern in Barcelona. He recently won the International Prize for Drawing LI - Guillot Ynglada organized by the Royal Academy Catalana de Belles Arts de Sant Jordi. Diaz Alama studied Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, where he currently teaches in the department of drawing. He previously received a grant from the Arauco Foundation to work with the painter Guillermo Munoz Vera in Madrid, and he also worked with the Norwegian artist Odd Nerdrum.


Jordi Diaz Alama is also committed to the promotion and preservation techniques of the great masters of painting from the late 18th Century. He thus opened the Barcelona Academy of Art, which he is says is created "in order to promote the technical and professional artist, so to ensure the future quality of the art of realistic figurative art, without trade, can hardly survive".
