Alfredo Candela was born in Alcoy (Alicante), in 1959. He attended his first painting studies at the School of Fine Arts in Alcoy, then moved to Valencia. It was here where he attended his preference for marine subjects, being one of his great specialties. It dominates the colour both in cold tones and the warmest quality that we can observe in its bright and luminous marinas, without forgetting the floral themes and the landscapes. Despite his age, he is still studying at the University of Valencia trying to improve his artistic skills. For these reasons, he is trying with the new tendencies, looking for the modern and young market.
Although he has not lavished much on solo exhibitions, he has frequently collaborated in various group exhibitions.On his first steps as an artist he did exhibitions in Cultural centers, banks and official institutions, and his first individual exhibition was in 1981.
