AURELIO RODRÍGUEZ LÓPEZ
Oil | Pastel
Aurelio tells the small stories that we all connect with, such as lovers parting at a train station, the smell of his mother’s home cooking, or two children gazing at a fresh loaf of bread (which won first prize at the First International Spanish Biennial of Pastel in 2011).
Trained in drawing, oil, pastel and several techniques of etching, Aurelio’s medium of choice is pastel painting on several surfaces that he previously prepares with a special primer.
He frequently travels internationally to exhibit, teach his skills or to create commissioned works on site.
Since 2014, Aurelio collaborates regularly with China Pastel Network in the tuition and dissemination of the pastel technique in China and has led over 15 workshops across the country.

About the Artist
Aurelio’s area of excellence is the PORTRAIT. In a distinguished career spanning four decades, he has created over 6,000 portraits, one of which was a finalist in the BP Portrait Awards 2012 and also featured in the book “500 Portraits” published by London’s National Portrait Gallery. He has also received 3 Honorable Mentions in the international ModPortrait Awards of which he now is a Jury member.
In several occasions, Sotheby’s has auctioned his portraits during London’s prestigious annual “Save the Children’s Winter Gala”.
Special portrait commissions include the Royal courts of Bahrain and Jordan, Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone’s daughters, bullfighter Julián López “El Juli”, tennis player Richard Krajicek & family, members of the rock band Def Leppard, LPGA golf player Beatriz Recari or businessmen across the world.
He has also produced a great number of still lifes, nudes and landscapes.
Noted for his rare mastery of technique, light, color and detail, his style has been characterized as heightened realism, hyperrealism, and surrealism. Aurelio uses the term ‘magic realism’ for some of his work.
He has garnered many accolades, varying from prestigious prizes to exhibitions in Madrid, New York, Miami, London, Paris, Moscow, Shanghai, Suzhou, Munich, Taipei, Japan’s Hoki Museum and dozens of other art hubs around the globe.
His work is held in private and public collections across more than fifty countries, among these are the Pastel Museum of Suzhou in China, the Pastel Museum of Saint-Aulaye, France and the Spanish Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona.
