With an accurate eye for detail, the Spanish artist Justo Revilla paints works reminiscent of paintings created by the sixteenth-century Dutch masters. His highly balanced compositions are contemporary in design, yet the painting technique is classical. Revilla’s subject matter ranges between still life, landscape and figurative.
Revilla studied Drawing the Schools of Arts and Artistic Offices of Madrid beginning in 1953. Two years later, he continued to study Drawing while working in a poster factory. In 1959, he trained at the Superior School of Beautiful Arts of San Fernando, and in 1963 won a scholarship. Revilla won the title of Professor of Drawing at the Superior School in 1965 when he concluded his studies.
Earning his first Drawing award at the age of twenty, the Molina Drawing Prize, Revilla earned the Medal in Painting at the Hall Autumn of Madrid eight years later, in 1968. He has also won the First Prize in the National Painting exhibition and the First Prize in Painters of Africa, both in 1972, the National Painting Prize two years running, 1973 and 1974, as well as special prizes awarded by Princess Sophia.
