Biography from David W. Streets~Beverly Hills~Fine Art/Appraisals:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Spanish artist Giner Bueno, born 1935 in Godella (a town along the Valencian coast) defines himself as a painter of vitality.  He received his passion for painting from his father, Luis Giner Vallas, who was a noted landscape painter. At the age of twelve, Giner was given watercolors and oil paints so that he could join his father and his friends while they painted.  “It never occurred to me to spend my time doing other activities which could take my attention away from painting,” says Bueno.

Giner Bueno became an impressionist painter himself.  He studied at the Valencia Arts and Crafts school, and later moved to Paris to further his training through an Education and Leisure grant.  Even with his years of educational training, Bueno still says, “The school where I really learned was my home, so many of my years of training – a considerable number of them – were spent painting and even more importantly, watching someone paint.”  During his earlier years, Bueno exhibited his work in Spanish painting contests and received awards including first prize from the Moncada (Valencia) Biannual Painting Contest in 1956, and the Seville Real Maestranza de Caballeria award in 1968.

Today, all of Giner Bueno’s influences can be seen from his Godella studio, which is situated above his house overlooking a garden.  He notes: “It is difficult for a Valencian painter to escape the luminosity of our land, to escape its color and its contrasts.  I am captive of all that and in my paintings I try to reflect, within the Impressionistic school, the joy of our beaches, of our festivals and of the life of the villages in the interior of our arid and rugged Valencia.”

Bueno intends to reflect the daily diversity of beauty in his countryside’s natural light and color through sweeping brushstrokes of pinks, purples and blues: “My brushstroke is vibrant, nervous, temperamental, always impregnated with the Valencian school that defines the authentic and true masters such as Sorolla, Pinazo or Navarro, for example.”

Viewers of Bueno’s canvases are presented with a look at Spanish coastal life.  His plein-air Mediterranean paintings reflect a variety of subjects including images of working class fishermen, peaceful seascapes, and women wearing traditional dresses keeping a watchful eye on the children at the beach or at market.  Josep Cadena, Chief-Editor and art critic of El Periodico de Catalunya newspaper in Spain, notes: “The paintings of Giner Bueno allow us to identify with that which is undying in the human personality, with that which, being so intimate, we frequently do not dare draw attention to, and with that which in his paintings we reclaim with obvious pleasure.”

Giner Bueno has participated in over 50 shows throughout Europe and regularly exhibits at the Sala Llorens in Barcelona and the Sala Ingres in Madrid and his paintings have been featured in Spanish galleries in Valencia, Castellón, Vitoria, Gijon and Gerón and also in the United States.

Giner Bueno is a member of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors of Madrid and the Valencia Fine Art Circle.  His work also is represented in the Municipal Archive Museum of Valencia, the Real Maestranza of Seville, and in the Florida Museum of Hispanic and Latin American Art.
