David Gonzalez Valor


Born in Alicante (Spain) in 1953.

After studying Fine Arts in the town where he was born, he completed his education at the San Carlos Fine Art School in Valencia.

Being a perfectionist, D.G. Valor pays a lot of attention to detail and once he begins a piece of work he becomes totally committed to finishing it. His main works are harbours and landscapes, although he also paints still life signed as Gonzalez or figurative paintings, signing them with a pseudonym Frances.

The admiration of his canvases is giving to the viewers a special sensation of peace.

David explains: "My work captures the moment, I will sit with a coffee observing people as they pass in their daily lives and then you will see a glimpse of a picture that is created before you.


I capture that moment in my mind and then recreate it with oil paints. I like to build up the layers and will have multiple pieces in progress at any given time. I try to capture intimate moments, actions and observations in life."


At the beginning of his career Valor worked as a commercial artist, now as a full-time painter, D.G. Valor has exhibited his work all over Europe.
