Manuel Díaz Meré, born on December 12, 1988, is a leading artist from Madrid known mainly for his traditional and highly realistic paintings. In his short career he has already managed to consolidate a characteristic style of realistic representation and brushstrokes developed with a very high fineness. In his works he presents a great interest in the figurative form and detail, which are embodied in his immersive portraits and representations of the human body. Díaz Meré conceives poetics as an expansion in which colors fight for excellence, a single brushstroke is full of a thousand nuances, whose expression and ease give life to the characters who star in their works.
In his paintings, this artist demonstrates a great technical skill that can be seen in the realism of the fabrics and the touch of painted clothes, in the style of master painters such as Zurbarán. In them, silk is silk, satin is satin and linen is linen. Díaz Meré studied Fine Arts and his main influence is the renowned painter Antonio López, whom he considers a great master of the perfect brushstroke. However, his paintings go beyond the technical excellence he has developed over the years. For him, the most important thing in his work is the poetry it contains and in which it is inspired, something he will continue to do for the rest of his career.
