 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.


Art critic, Horacio Obaya, writes about Esteve’s work, “In truth, his is stupendous work


that reflects the action of the sea - being stopped in the humility of a stone, of a puddle or


a reflection in the coast. The process of hyper-realism is surpassed, by finding a special


light that transcends the real thing to endow to the work of an image that itself does not


remain in its simple transmission to the cloth if not that
