Royo, one of EC Galleries' most distinguished artists, joined us from Valencia, Spain for a three-day show at Exclusive Collections Gallery in Fashion Valley Shopping Center May 13-15.
"Royo is discussed in the finest art galleries in the world as one of the greatest figurative painters of all time. His international gallery presence can be found from Geneva to London, Tokyo to San Diego, New York and Chicago, along with Mexico. Royo's collectors hail his genius as paintings are rare, demand is high, and the sales of his art are swift" (Off the Easel Magazine).
Royo exhibited his most recent collection of original oil paintings for his beloved collectors, signed copies of his book Utopia, and personally dedicated his paintings to their new owners.

"To be an artist is a privilege. They used to say in ancient Greece, 'When the gods gave you talent, they also gave you a whip!' Privilege comes together with sacrifice. It is a privilege to be a painter, but [I have] the obligation to do better every day. Talent is not free. You have to work at it every day."
