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. Dominguez is a romantic realist who creates compositions wherein one finds charismatic atmospheres and enigmatic moods behind a façade of tranquillity.
