Garcia Soler was born on the eastern coast
of Spain in Alcoy, Alicante in 1957.
Initially inspired by the light and colors of the
Mediterranean coasts, Soler pursued a career in art
by attending the art school Escuela Municipal de Bellas Artes
at a young age.
He continued his education at the Escuela
de Artes y Oficios at the Universidad de Valencia,
from which he acquired an art degree.
Soler considers his technique so be somewhere
between Realism and Hyperrealism.
He cites his artistic inspirations to come from artists
such as Velazquez, El Greco, and Picasso.
He respects and emulates Velazquez's ability to
capture the essence of his subjects and his use of
colors and atmosphere to enhance the artistic
significance of the works.
Thus, Soler aims to dominate the light, the air, and
the reflections in his work in order to create a contemplative,
atmospheric mystique of nature in each
of his works.
He can play with the fierceness of the sea or the
tranquility of the sunset.
