Isidro Antequera, Spanish (1926 - )

From Spain, Isidro Antquera was the son of a professional photographer and painter who died when Isidro was an infant.  His taste for painting and drawing was encouraged by his teacher at school, and from that time he combined his great love with learning various trades to succeed.

The first exhibitions of Isidro Antequera's artworks were in his hometown in 1945 and 1946.  The poet John Warden Manchego encouraged him to continue and compete in the Exhibition of Fine Arts Valdepenas contest that coincided on many occasions.

The pastor, Criptana Field, Don Gregorio Bermejo, commissioned him to cut his first mural and to continue with training in Madrid.  There he began working in the studios' films Seville and Cifesa at the hand of the designer, Enrique Alarcon.

Simultaneously he attended classes in the painter Henry Bráñez School of Arts and Crafts in Madrid.  Another great painter, José Frau, directed him for some time, and then he attended classes in Carlos Sainz de Tejada in The College of Fine Arts of San Fernando.

His first exhibition in Madrid was in the Board Marabini, and was presented by writer and art critic, Lee Meadows.  The Institute of Manchego sponsored his second exhibition in Ciudad Real.

For a while he lived in Extremadura, marking its landscape and developing a side that had not taken before.  He settled permanently in Madrid where he met the teacher Daniel Vázquez Díaz and Manchego Gregorio Prieto painter with whom he maintained a good relationship.

National Exhibitions included the National Medal of Linares in 1955, and exhibitions at Madrid in The National Library under the call for exhibition "Artists of Ciudad Real". 

In 1954, he married Criptanense Juliana Galindo, with whom he had three children.

He has done portraits of many persons.  Along with friend and painter Antonio Carpe Murcia, he made numerous murals and mosaics for churches in southern New Iberia.  Between 1960 and 1963, he made the great altar cloths for the New Parish of Criptana Field.

From 1964 he did a new stage painting almost exclusively to American Gallery "Firenze".  This period is characterized by change in both the issues and in the processing and style.  It could be called an Impressionist painting with large patches of spatula, with intense color and entertainment items, cockfights, circus and musical themes.

In 1966 he received a scholarship from the Fundación Juan March did a journey through Italy and France for several months.  Back in camp, Criptana founded and directs along with several "crazy" poets, artists and scholars, the Journal MILESTONE, seeking cultural roots and poetics of La Mancha.

He was back to work in the film world in 1969 for U.S. producers "Center Films, and then ran several pictures for the Barcelona Wax Museum, highlighting the allegorical themes of the stairs and a front.

In 1973, he proposed the creation of the first Municipal School of Drawing and Painting of La Mancha, assuming the execution and direction of this post until 1996. From that moment he creates an artistic and cultural hitherto unknown.

He was director of the Art Course at the Cultural Foundation Almagro in Castilla-La Mancha in 1982 and 1984.

He has made more than 50 solo exhibitions in various Spanish cities, her last being Retrospective Exhibition in 2006 in Campo de Criptana. His work appears in many public collections.
