JF51 - Rafael Griera Calderon (1934-)
Born in Las Palmas de Gran Canarias , 1934
Son of a manufacturer Olot imagery trained in the School of Fine Arts of Olot and frequented the club Crater art. He exhibited for the first time (mostly landscapes) in 1953. A contact to Mallorca (1956), with Anglada Camarasa and other painters, made him arise for some time towards informal painting. When he returned to figuration had completely broken with tradition Olot and since then his painting, which shuns the light, seems to take Nordic model schools. He also made at commercial illustrations.
