Navarro was born on the eastern coast of Spain in the city of Alcoy (Alicante) in 1965. Initially inspired by his father, Navarro attended the art school of Escuela Municipal de Bellas Artes at a young age. He continued his education in Valencia where he received a degree in economics at the Valencia Univeristy as well as an art degree from Circulo de Bellas Artes.

He then returned to Alcoy to paint and apprentice under the painter/teacher Selles. Also a painter, Navarro’s father taught his son the techniques of oil painting. Navarro’s younger brother accepted their father’s art training, too. At age 19, Navarro began painting professionally and in 1986 received first place in an art exhibition sponsored by the Government Delegate of Galicia in Galicia, Spain.

Navarro considers his technique somewhere between Realism and Hyperrealism. His studies provided an admiration for the artists Velazquez, Picasso and Greco. Navarro respects Velazquez for the artist’s ability to capture the soul of a person in a portrait and the colours and atmosphere used to create the paintings. Picasso and Greco are admired for their bold creativity and expressive colours. Such creativity, expressive colours and atmosphere can be found in Navarro’s striking sunsets, sweeping seas and foaming waves. Inspired by the vastness of both the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Navarro paints seascapes of undulation as well as seascapes of tranquility. With great artistic emotion and power, he captures waves crashing against rock formations. He paints translucent waves gently rolling into shore as the evening’s sunset pierces through the water. His calm seas mesmerise viewers with the ocean’s expanse, or the feeling of a warm sun dancing on the water, or an endless horizon.
