First Solo Exhibition at Osborne Studio Gallery from June 17th – 4th July
David Noalia, lives and works in Seville, the capital of Andalucia, the city of his dreams and source of his inspiration. Seville is famous for flamenco, Moorish architecture, paintings by Velazquez and Murillo.
David Noalia returns to a favourite subject – the Andalusian Horse, also known as the Pure Spanish Horse. This breed belongs to the Iberian peninsula, where its ancestors have lived for thousands of years. He describes this subject as ‘essential , as it allows me to reach any person or culture. It is a universal theme, and I am passionate about movement, elegance and power.’
He sold his first paintings to a dealer aged seventeen, who commissioned eight more pieces. This was the defining moment, he discovered he could make a living from art.
The list of first prizes in his CV is phenomenal, far too long to list here, fourteen first prizes in art competitions throughout Spain from 1996 to 2015, exhibitions in Madrid, Paris, Mallorca, Marbella.
He describes his greatest influences as ‘the brushstrokes of Velazquez, the light and colour of Sorolla, and the bravery of Gerhard Richter.’
The freshness and energy of his painting attracts collectors from the UK, Europe, US and the Middle East.
