Leon Olmo was born in Moron de la Frontera at the end of the 1940's beginning at a young age to study drawing and wax technique. He currently lives in Castilleja de la Cuesta where he paints out of his studio; a place that arouses the senses and inspires Olmo’s magnificent technique. From heightened stimulation incredible still-lifes are produced from the nearby aromas of lemons, jasmine, pomegranates, and medlars, fruits which often appear throughout his paintings.

Olmo is a self-taught painter, reaching the status as one of Seville’s most talented artists
through strict perseverence in drawing and painting. Working until complete exhaustion, Olmo attempts to capture all of himself with every image he creates. For Olmo, neatness and cleanliness go hand in hand when creating a work of art. Though he denies traditional academicism, Olmo does utilize a methodical approach in each painting that begins with strict preparation of the fibrapan board upon which he paints. Beginning with a primer composed of calcium sulfate and glue, he sands the board’s surface until smooth. This regimented routine is in accord with Olmo’s insistence of maintaining neatness and cleanliness for he has rejected the use of canvas where any imperfection is not up to standard.

Olmo’s dreamlike masterpieces contain human warmth that has an unsurpassable way of
working their way into the hearts and minds of his collectors. Leon Olmo and his son Leon Reina make up a father and son painting team that both create magnificent still life images. His paintings have been displayed in numerous exhibitions and gallery shows throughout Europe, the United States, Australia, Singapore, and Taiwan.
