Rafel Casado Fernàndez, Rafel d'Olot.


Rafel was born in Sant Rafel street (Olot) in January 1970.
The strong concern about painting has been important since he his childhood.
In the 80's he began his studies in the school of fine arts and crafts in Olot, where he was taught by Lluís Soler, Carlos Aulí and under the direction of Joan Vila Montcau.
His professional life took a different direction although it has always been deeply related to the world of painting.
In 1998 he enrolls the school of fine arts of Sant Joan les Fonts where he studied for a decade delving into the various techniques of drawing and painting.
In 2008 he leaves this school to pursue higher studies and become immersed in reuniting with his style. Both things with great success and fulfillment.
Currently his artworks have become an obvious and well-done style, based on volumes, textures and the pleasant colors provided by his beloved Garrotxa land.

His work has been exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions such as:
