Jaume Queralt was born in Tarragona in 1949 . When he turned 8 years old his father took him to the School of Fine Arts in Tarragona because of his ability to paint. At age of 13 he started studying at the Escola Massana in Barcelona where his evident talent for painting was already standing out, especially influenced by Van Gogh .
In 1973 he began his professional career as an artist. He decided to move to Paris for a year. In 1978 moved to Alforja to set up his studio , which he still has, and where he continues to live today, accompanied by Neus, his wife, and his son Jaume.
His work is varied , both in terms of styles and subject matter . At the height of his career his figurative genius showed with his ” dolls “, which came to life with unparalled eye expressions . He also uses his talent to paint and capture the everyday reality of his days; coffee and breakfast with seniors around a stove or evenings in the bars with the men playing dominoes and cards. It also should be noted his work included paintings of the interiors of homes, with great detail to antiques and period pieces
Hailed as a major figurative artist with an uncanny ability to capture the faces of dolls, shadows and transparències. Gradually his work leaves this world as it evolves, as in the 90s, to the abstract .
