Eduardo Blanco was born in the city of León, in the north of Spain, in 1974. There he spent his entire childhood and adolescence, until he was 23, the age at which he became emancipated, living in different cities in France and Spain. He currently resides on the island of Mallorca since 2013.
Since childhood he shows interest in art, standing out in the field of painting, which attracts him so much.
Eduardo Blanco has made himself an artist. Although his studies took him down another path, which led him to graduate in Tourism, at the age of 25 he resumed his idyll with painting and immersed himself fully in the artistic world, devouring art books, watching videos, attending workshops, museums, exhibitions and staying informed of the different trends and developments in the artistic scene.
Although he began working for years with watercolors, currently his main work is in oil. Her painting is mainly figurative and in her oil paintings realism, expressionism and abstraction play with unexpected results that surprise the viewer.
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 magazines in Spain, Italy, the United States and the United Kingdom.
Eduardo Blanco works mainly on commissions, participating in some exhibition and selling his work through online and physical galleries (currently in Barcelona, Malaga, Madrid and London). His work is found in both national and international private collections. The main collectors of it are from Spain, the United States and Germany.
Among his latest achievements, he feels especially proud of having been able to make a portrait of Rafa Nadal, one of his greatest idols and personal references. It is an order made by Banco Santander as a gift for the tennis player.
