GOYO DOMINGUEZ was born in Fuentecen, Spain in 1960. 

He spent his formative years studying for the priesthood which later was to have a profound effect on his work. His extraordinary natural talent was recognised and encouraged by the church resulting in the commission of numerous murals in colleges and churches throughout Spain and in the Vatican. At the age of 25 he gave up his vocation to forge his own career as a professional artist. Goyo Dominguez is a romantic realist who paints figuratively with a unique sense of vision, beauty and imagination. His compositions, depicted with great technical skill and style, are compelling and serene, often with enchanting subject matters.

Goyo's gave up his vocation to devote himself entirely to painting and studied Fine Arts at Madrid’s Complutense University. The demanding self-disciplines of his ecclesiastical upbringing and training reveal themselves in his natural intellectual ability to assimilate the history and culture of his homeland and to portray these roots in an ordered harmony of form and colour

His fascination with works of the 16th and 17th centuries inspires his favourite themes; still life, the human body and landscape. The intriguing result is a contemporary fusion of Renaissance Europe and the Classical World, often combined with elements of the abstract, transcending the classical past and the present day.
