Javier Mulio was born in 1957 in Alcoy, Alicante, Spain. Due to the number of artists in his home city, and the special relationship he had with some of them, Javier began to paint at the age of fourteen. At the age of eighteen he began his formal training in art. During his education and training he studied under the Spanish artist and teacher Mila Gomez, in Alcoy, Alicante, Spain from 1973 to 1976.
Javier began painting professionally after he completed his schooling in 1978. Since this time he has exhibited in many galleries, including Galeria Sanchez, Granada, Spain in 1982; Galeria Aguando, Logrono, Spain in 1995; and Galeria Soria, Chateauroux, France, 1996.
Mulio has an almost hyper-realist style of painting. Simple still life compositions of glass, fruit and liquid with exquisite lighting in uncomplicated surroundings. His paintings reflect a timeless serenity and are always carefully balanced in colour, shape and texture. He has dedicated his life to painting still life using the techniques of the Dutch Masters but with a more contemporary use of colour and elements.
Javierís still-life paintings create a sense of power and drama through their simplicity. He makes one feel as though they can take the individual elements directly out of the painting.
The works of Javier Mulio are in private and corporate collections throughout Europe and the Americas.
