Marc Esteve was born in Alcoy (Alicante) Spain in 1971. He began his studies locally at the Escuela de Artes y Oficios. In 1994 he left his hometown to reside by the sea – his inspiration for achieving the Mediterranean light that is showcased in his works. In 1997, Esteve attended the Universidad de Bellas Artes in Altea (Spain). In 2001, after completing his studies on the university level, Esteve returned to his hometown where he now resides. He continues to draw his inspiration from the movement and the light of the sea, but now includes local muses to create well-rounded, hyper-realistic works of art. Esteve’s work can be found in national and private collections in locales such as Spain, England, Portugal and Russia. His work is also a part of the Royal collection at the palace in Saudi Arabia. Esteve has participated in many collective exhibitions in his native Spain.
