Biography

Life Events

Jose Luis Corella is a prominent representative of contemporary classical Spanish realism. The subtlety of the realism in his portraits embraces the deep complexity of the
human being, with simple everyday images developed into marvelous works of art.
Born in Spain in 1959, Jose Luis Corella studied at the Facultad de Bellas Artes de San
Carlos in Valencia. Since 1980 Jose Luis Corella’s work has been widely exhibited in
numerous group and solo exhibitions in Spain and the US.
Jose Luis Corella was elected as the Visitors Choice Winner at the National Portrait Gallery in London BP Portrait Award Exhibition in 2008, 2009 and 2015. “It wins top
marks for flawless execution, but also illustrates that prettiness alone does not make a
picture.“ – excerpt Daily Telegraph article on the National Gallery BP Portrait Exhibition in London in 2008.
