José Antonio Higuero is a Disabled and Self-taught Artist, from Spain. He is a Cartoonist of Comics as well as a Contemporary Art Painter. When he was 18 years old he read a book by Pablo Picasso, loved his work and wanted to dedicate himself to Contemporary Art. Since then he has participated in contests of City Councils and Associations for the Disabled, winning prizes. His style of Contemporary Art Painting is Neo-Expressionism, with which he identifies himself, although sometimes he paints in a Realist style. He draws portraits of characters with vivid and pure colors in Neoexpressionist style with wax on paper, which is the technique with which he expresses himself best. With his painting he intends to go deeper and deeper into expressionist art and find everything that interests him in man and search in the soul of every human being that he intends as a spectator to reflect and find himself in every drawing, in every painting, to ultimately find himself. His favorite artists are Pablo Picasso, Jean Michel Basquiat, Francis Bacon, Antonio Saura, Karel Appel, Alfonso Fraile and Juan Barjola.
