Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona in 1999, Casals exhibits in collective exhibitions from the same year and solo exhibitions since 2002. He has also participated in many statewide competitions winning numerous awards and citations. It is one of the main representatives of the new contemporary realism; interprets reality with a deeply personal vision, beyond the simple description, from regards, in memory, in feeling. Its production focuses on the landscape and the human figure, which develops primarily in acrylics and oils, but also in ink or pencil drawings. In Memory of a face, portrait of his grandfather, transmits the same force that characterizes the landscape and a deep sense of love and loneliness (artist's blog: www.davidcasals.blogspot.com.es).
