Manuel Higueras was born in Malaga, Spain, in 1973 where he started his artistic career at the Fine Arts School. His first exhibition was in 1994, when he was only twenty one years old. This exhibition was travelled to a number of cities around Spain to great success. Today he has participated in a great number of national art exhibitions and his work is widely held in several private collections. The work itself is painted to a very high standard with an almost photo-real take on the still life subject with vibrant colours and strong compositions.
