Jaume Laporta Oversized Canvas Art
Jaume Laporta is a native of Barcelona that began his painting career at the young age of fourteen. Three short years later he began studying at the Fine Arts School of the University of Barcelona where he later graduated with a degree in painting. In the 1970s Jaume settled down in Costa Brava, having been drawn there by the incredible landscape. This is where he cultivated his love affair with the sea. On one particular trip to the beach to do some drawing Jaume was taken by the atmosphere around him. He decided, from that point on, to dedicate his life to depicting the seafaring world with as much realism as he could muster. For this reason the main subject of many of his paintings are boats and their occupants.
